http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ is hosting her weekly Outdoor Wednesday and I thought I would join in this week. I took these pictures yesterday at Noccalula Falls in Gadsden. The falls is a 100 foot natural wonder. It is beautiful all year long and rarely looks like this!
We had a dusting of snow last week and combined with the freezing temperatures the mist coming from the
falls has frozen and is beautiful. If you look closely you can see the chapel in the top of the picture.
This is looking into the gorge below the falls. In better weather you can walk under the falls and along the Black River. The rocks are huge.
The falls is named for Noccalula (in the pic above) who was a young Cherokee maiden who plunged to her untimely death rather than forsake her true love. She is memorialized by a statue and the engraved story of her fate. The park also has a pioneer village, a group of rustic, hand-hewn log buildings representing a display of pioneer living conditions. It is a great place to visit when it is warm and the flowers are blooming, but not on this cold day! BRRR!
Thanks for visiting me this week and please go visit the other participants in Outdoor Wednesday.
