Chimney Rock State Park

Chimney Rock State Park, originally uploaded by CarolinaRen.

When you visit Chimney Rock, you have the option to take a 1.0+ mile hike out to see this waterfall. A recent visitor told us how disappointed they were because it was HOT out and the falls were barely a trickle 🙂 From the card: “Spectacular Hickory Nut Falls has a vertical drop of 404 feet, making it one of the highest waterfalls east of the Mississippi River.” (When it’s flowing, I guess! Also teaches you not to always believe the flowery adjectives on the backs of postcards–I know at least two people who would disagree with the word “spectacular” as applied to this falls!) 🙂
