Casual dress is usually OK to wear outdoors, but at one popular hiking destination, a tourist attraction is always dressed for the occasion.
From lofty heights, a waterfalls appears as a white necktie, created as water funnels down the slope between rock cliffs at northeast Georgia's Tallulah Gorge.
But the current that definesTempesta Falls is real, flowing about 400 feet below and toward the south rim of the gorge.
In spite of its formal appearance, the falls is rugged, roaring to life as tons of water chase the sudden drop in elevation.
It's one of four waterfalls created by the Tallulah River in about a quarter mile that are easily viewed from observation points.
Trips to the gorge floor are controlled and limited. But carefully-placed observation areas on the gorge's north and south rims allow visitors a chance to follow the river as it dips deeper into this canyon that reaches depths of about 1,000 feet.
