Dry Falls

Oh, the irony of the name! Dry Falls is located in Highlands, North Carolina. The parking area is on the smaller side so I'd definitely recommend getting there early or on a less traveled day. A short walk down some stairs leads you to the waterfall, where you can walk behind the falls. Plan on… Continue reading Dry Falls

We went during the week and we were the only ones there- always a… Continue reading Henderson Falls Park

At the end of our spur of the moment trip to Syracuse in 2013, we stopped off at Niagara Falls before making the few hour trek back home. Even if you only have an hour or so,… Continue reading Travel Thursday: Niagara Falls
