I TOOK THIS LAST WEEK FROM THE EASILY ACCESSABLE SIDE OF THE GORGE. YOU CAN’T SEE THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE FALLS FROM THIS OVERLOOK. I VISITED HERE MANY TIMES AS A CHILD WITH MY FAMILY. I’LL BE POSTING OTHER CLOSER VIEWS IN THE COMING WEEKS. IF YOU DON’T KNOW, GEORGE AND BETSY ARE TWO BLOGGERS FROM TENNESSEE WHO LOVE WATERFALLS AND NEVER MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT ONE. I HOPE THEY AND YOU ENJOY THIS LITTLE SLICE OF MY, ALMOST HEAVEN, WEST VIRGINA!
