Sometimes, the destination is worth the price paid to get there. Consider Long Creek Falls in Upstate South Carolina. This magnificent falls of about 40 feet in height cascades into the Chattooga River.
Finding it is easier said than done. A ride along a forest service road dead ends at the trail head. For about 2 miles, the trail is easy to follow. But when the roar of the falls is first heard, the path turns from passive to aggressive with one step. For about 150 yards, it's a deep, twisting plunge among trees, rhododendron and roots. There's no time to plan. After that first step, the destination arrives in no time. To return to e-Photos.biz, click here.
