Second Falls (Graveyard Fields)

North Carolina Waterfalls

For a waterfall nut like me, my current home in Transylvania County in southwestern North Carolina is paradise.  There's no firm count on how many waterfalls lie within my home county but it is certainly well over 200.  But Transylvania certainly doesn't stand alone in the southern mountains.  It may surprise to to discover what a water-wonderland North Carolina is...
