Pearson’s Falls in May
After eight inches of rain this week, I can only imagine how active Pearson’s Fall will be when I drive there today. Three years ago, I did this post, and I wanted to share it again, just in case you missed it the first time around. Enjoy.
Each month, Pearson’s Falls near the town of Tryon, North Carolina, takes on a different persona. The rains have been infrequent this month, so the flow is reduced. The fresh green of the new foliage contrasts well with the ancient granite rocks.
The creek below the main falls offers many smaller falls and cascades.
On the quarter mile walk to the falls, you will pass rock faces dripping with spring water. and covered with tender green plants.
A stone bridge over the creek offers the perfect place to stop and admire the breathtaking beauty of the gorge.
