Scenic Sunday #130: Tallulah Gorge

Tallulah Gorge State Park, Tallulah Falls, Georgia. October 14, 2009.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

This picture was taken on a rainy October day from the south rim of Tallulah Gorge in Georgia.  If you look closely just above the center of the photo, you’ll see a suspension bridge.  The suspension bridge leads from one rim to the other.  All you need to do to cross the gorge is to go down approximately 450 steps on one side — and up approximately the same number on the other side!  I’ve done it twice, but for some reason it takes me longer to go  up than it does to go down!

    A beautiful picture, it actually looks in the middle of nowhere, like the tropical rainforest or something. That bridge would be my worst nightmare! I can’t even walk past the basement sreps without making a wide berth!!

    Beautiful,but I think I would enjoy the bridge from one side only.that is a lot of stairs to climb.
