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!) :)
