Dry Falls, NC

Another one of my visits to NC, Dry Falls was totally worth the one-and-a-half hour drive from Clemson. There seem to be a lot of places in NC that one could visit for sightseeing, and my love for mountains drives me there more often than not. Since it was a relatively short drive, it is acceptable that this post will also be short (there weren’t many things to do).

The good thing about the drive from Clemson to Dry Falls was that on the way, we were also greeted by another waterfall called the Bridal Veil Falls. I have posted a picture below, and as you can see, it looks NOTHING like a bridal veil. The reason is pretty obvious, there wasn’t enough water falling in the waterfall. Picture this image with more water falling, and you’ll see why they call it the Bridal Veil Falls. I imagine that it would look really great at some other time of the year.

After this quick stop (it literally takes no more than 5 mins to get over with), we continued on our way to the Dry Falls. Now this was the place we originally intended to visit, so it had to be better. It definitely was. As I parked the car and started to walk towards the path leading to the falls, we were greeted by the view below:

We had to walk a bit, but it was not like hiking, it was a normal walk down from the level of the highway, towards the falls. The best part about the Dry Falls was that the path would actually take you inside the waterfall- literally!

And we’re there

These pictures were taken from the highway side of the waterfall. As you can see in the picture above, there is a pathway which actually goes through the falls to the other side, and this particular quality of this waterfall was captivating. Here is one picture from ‘the other side’:

As was promised, this post will end now- short and (hopefully) sweet! Anyway, this was a good experience as a lover of the mountains. I would definitely recommend driving to this place if you live nearby. You are traveling to some other place you could take a small detour if this place is close to your original travel path. Thanks for reading! Cheers! 🙂
