"Peaceful, beautiful, tranquil, powerful, often violent displays of our planets most critical element, water.  Maybe it is the sights and sounds of nature, maybe it is the thrill of the hunt, or perhaps it is just a life long love affair with gravity."  ~Casey Marcum


On January 15, 2012 I took my first trip to Transylvania County in Western North Carolina for a hike to a few waterfalls.  What I witnessed that weekend fundamentally changed something inside of me almost instantaneously.  Since then, I have returned to these majestic mountains over and over again in search for more. Fast forward to 2016, I have hiked to 472 waterfalls and counting.  On October 12, 2014 I finished hiking to all 301 Waterfalls listed on the Waterfalls of North Carolina Map by finally reaching Falls on Mill Creek.


 I will continue to update this site with each new waterfall I visit so I hope you can enjoy these images as much as I did finding them!
