Nantahalla Falls

The white water near the center of this picture is known as Nantahala Falls. It's really a Class IV rapids, but is one of the most popular 'waterfalls' in North Carolina. It's the last and biggest rapid encountered by whitewater enthusiasts on the extremely popular Nantahala River.

I have pictures of rafters going over these 'falls', but I decided to post a picture of the empty river so you can see how pretty this stretch of river actually is.
