Half-Day Waterfall Tour From Asheville, North Carolina

When a river meets a towering rock and the water goes over, drops, and spills into a pool below, a waterfall comes into a being.  Waterfalls are beautiful and those tumbling tendrils of water seem almost magical.  And they make for spectacular photos.
