Down Memory Lane: Georgia Waterfalls

Betsy and I rarely travel anywhere without working in a few visits to waterfalls.  In August of last year we went to Florida to see Betsy’s brother and to celebrate Betsy’s birthday.  Along the way we stopped near Turners Corner, Georgia, to visit four waterfalls that we found in one of our waterfall books.

The first waterfall we saw came as a surprise.  We found Trahlyta Falls when we rounded a curve and saw it through an opening in the trees along road.  We got a pretty good look at the falls from the side of the road, even though it is actually in a state park.  We decided to settle for this view rather than enter the park and hike.

There were two waterfalls along Waters Creek.  The first (Lower Falls) was on private property and we couldn’t see it very well.  Getting to the main waterfall involved a drive along a Forest Service road.  Those roads are always a challenge, but our faithful Prius handled it without any problems.

The last two waterfalls involved a very pleasant hike through a woods.  There wasn’t much water going over either Middle or Lower Desoto Falls, but they were both worth the visit.

    I have been more than just interested in waterfalls since I’ve been young. Can you explain your interest or “history” with waterfalls? I’m attempting to understand my connection with water and its movement so your answer might be of help. – – – Thank You, Michael Murphy
