Waterfall on Sam Branch, NC




Sam Branch, located on the flank of Sam’s Knob in North Carolina, is one of the strongest flowing high elevation creeks around. For half a mile, the boulder choked creek descends through a continuous series of cascades and significant waterfalls. This particular drop, near the top, features stunning striations and vibrant colors striping through the rock. I couldn’t pass up an opportunity scrambling to a precarious ledge for a capture of this fascinating formation!
