The hike in was uneventful. There was a little color along the trail, but it's mostly yellows at this elevation. Today wasn't about chasing color, tho - it was about chasing waterfalls. Kevin had been in to this creek a while back on a sunny day - so he wasn't happy with the images he took. Today the creek was gushing, it was mostly overcast, and the rocks were still wet from last night's rains - excellent shooting conditions. The creek was pretty right away, but Kevin had particular destinations along the creek in mind, so we headed right for those. I'm glad we did because they were absolutely beautiful. Here a sample -
We also decided to stop at a nice small waterfall on Middle Prong.

By the time we got back to the vehicles, I was absolutely whooped - but I just had to stop at the overlook at Second Falls on the way home. It's been so foggy and rainy here in the last week, and this was the first day I could see the falls from the Parkway. It may be the last for a while too if that hurricane heads this way.
