Default December Waterfalls 3/3

Nearby Dennis Cove wilderness in Cherokee National Forest is a popular destination for hikers, including through-hikers on the Appalachian Trail. And one of the most popular sites along the AT here is Laurel Falls - a big and impressive 60' high waterfall that's at least as wide as it is tall! But there are other waterfalls nearby, and not many folks venture on down the side trail off of the AT to Coon Den Falls.

Coon Den Falls trail traverses some very lush green woodlands...

There are plenty of little riffles and "mini-falls" along the way...

The main falls are nearly 100 feet high, but not very wide. Here's a view of the top of the falls (taken with the old M 200)

A quick peek at the midst of the falls (taken while hanging onto the slick mossy sides...)

It's almost impossible to get all of the waterfall into one photo, but here's two attempts...
