The mountains of western North Carolina are home to hundreds of waterfalls, and DuPont State Forest is the site a several significant falls. Several movies, including Last of the Mohicans and The Hunger Games have been filmed at DuPont, including at the falls. We've had a decent amount of rain the past week, so the falls were flowing well.

1 - Hooker Falls

2 - The aptly-named Triple Falls

Sweet captures, Moose.
My wife and I just returned from a week in the area and loved DSF. We're already planning another trip back.
Thanks for sharing!
