On Saturday my sweetie and I took a little walk through Gorges State Park and onto Forest Service land to bag a lovely waterfall. Rainbow Falls is a 150 foot waterfall on the Horsepasture River in Jackson County, NC. It's about a 3 mile roundtrip hike and although rated strenuous, we rather disagreed. The trial to the base of the falls is not too well defined, so footing was a bit tricky. Both the bottom and the top of the Falls are quite lovely. The water was cold, but the sun was warm and only a bit breezy.
Always the negotiator, we took my car, but my sweetie drove so I could knit. Hats of course. 1.7 hats, bringing the November total to 8. A fine hike!
