Watery Wednesday #106: Hurricane Falls

Hurricane Falls, Tallullah Gorge State Park, Georgia. June 23, 2009.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

Hurricane Falls is one of the major waterfalls in Tallulah Gorge State Park in Georgia.  It is the waterfall that a visitor can get closest to, but getting close involves a hike down 600+ steps from the rim trail.  And after enjoying the waterfall there are the same 600+ steps back up to the rim.  But the steps were worth it in my opinion.

This picture was taken during a June, 2009, visit to Tallulah Gorge.

    That is the prettiest waterfall! I remember when my brother’s son was young and the two of them made the hike down into the gorge. Larry said he thought to himself, I’m never going to get out of here!!! Thanks for sharing your wonderful photo today George.

    Hi George,
    Although I don’t care for the word Hurricane… it is a magnificent waterfall.
    RJ and I have taken that hike before and it was well worth the effort.

    I seem to recall hearing about the 600 steps before – how did your legs feel the next day?

  9. Janis Says:

    600 STEPS!!!!!! WOW, … beautiful water falls, it almost looks like a water slide.

  10. Kathy Ariano Says:

    Six hundred steps? Are these steep? Is there a rail or are you on your own?
    Beautiful, though.

    That is indeed a beautiful waterfall. I love it.

  12. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    Looks so slippery. Now let me guess, do I even need to ask if you went down and back up those steps? Did you take a picture of the steps? It would be cool to see that tomorrow.

  13. Cindy S Says:

    It’s always lovely to see a waterfall, so pretty! I can see that this one would not disappoint.
    Hugs, Cindy

    a few short breaks in those 600 + steps would make the climb enjoyable too. that is definitely another pretty one. how did it get its name?

  15. happyone Says:

    I agree it would be worth it.

  16. Carletta Says:

    Those 600 steps would be too much for me so I’ll enjoy this beauty through your lovely photo George!

  17. Hilda Says:

    Beautiful and very refreshing to tired eyes.

    I might manage the climb down, especially with this to soothe my tired legs, but climbing back up is another matter altogether!
