Crabtree Falls
Photo By Steve Perry

  • Title: Crabtree Falls
  • State/Province/Region: North Carolina
  • Country: United States
  • Description: This image was taken on my trip along the Blue Ridge parkway. I had seen photos of Crabtree Falls from time to time and I always wanted to stop by and pay it a visit. Plus, with all the water this year I had a feeling it probably looked pretty good. The falls is located through a closed NPS campground. It looked like it was a pretty cool place at one time, but now it’s just an eerie stroll past overgrown campsites and shuttered buildings. My son was with me and I think the word “creepy” rolled off his tongue about a dozen times. We made our way to the trail, I think it was about a mile and a half and downhill all the way – so neither of us were looking forward to the climb back up! All I could think was I hope it’s worth it! I needn’t have worried – once we arrived it was so TOTALLY worth it – it was magnificent! It just towers above everything else and almost seems to create it’s own light as the water dances off the nearly jet black rocks. I was really excited and was able to try several different compositions before it got too dark to shoot. Despite the fading light and uphill hike back, I was smiling all the way.
