Rut ro...my fault ladies!! Sorry about that!!

Beautiful. It would be great if these pictures were labled with a location. Nothing more frustrating than to see a picture of a place you would like to visit and no way of knowing where it is.

Waterfall Wednesday: This 150-foot marvel is called Shunkawauken Falls. Starting from Columbus, NC, take a scenic drive up White Oak Mountain Road to find the falls. You'll also find a sweeping mountain view nearby.

A big thank you to Cristal F. for sharing the photo!
