Catawba Rhododendron

This is purple Catawba Rhododendron blooming in the North Carolina Appalachian Mountains during the spring.  You’ll find this species growing in the eastern part of the United States, mainly in the mountains in late May or early June.

Tom Branch Falls

If you’re looking for an easy place to be outdoors and enjoy nature and waterfalls, you need to visit the Deep Creek Area at Bryson City The hiking trails are beautiful and wide enough for walkers, runners and bikers. It’s located at the edge of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park.

There are three waterfalls in the park: Indian Creek Falls, Juney Whank Falls and Tom Branch Falls which I’m featuring today.

This is Tom Branch Falls in the springtime, May. The watershed is very small but still pretty. The waterfall is located on the mountainside, spilling into the creek and the creek is beside the trail.

I hope you visit Deep Creek soon, you will enjoy it!

Pearsons Falls

Pearsons Falls is such a pretty waterfall! It’s located off highway 176 between Tryon and Saluda. The Tryon Garden Club purchased the falls and the park area. You pay a small fee to enter the park and it’s well worth it, for all the upkeep.

This is a perfect place to visit in the spring as they have a lot of wildflowers that bloom in the springtime, Trillium being one of them. The trail is super easy, less than half a mile.

A little history… the waterfall is named after Charles William Pearson who discovered it scouting for the railroad around the Civil War era.
