During summer 2014, we took a guided waterfalls tour led by Adam DeWitte, Director of Education, Pisgah Field School. Adam led us to several beautiful falls near Pisgah Forest, North Carolina, with one of them being fantastically serene.
The stream of that particular falls flows across a flat rock which you can easily walk out on. Months later, I can still imagine someone sitting there in well placed chair amid stream, perhaps reading Robert Frost, absorbing the sounds and pleasant energy of that special place.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
~ The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost ~
If you have actually done that, I envy you…
A guided tour is definitely the way to go. Your guide drives you to each location and shares information about each falls that really enriches the experience. You can book your tour with Adam by visiting the Pisgah Field School website.
