Tuning Fork

Visual cues confirm that some waterfalls contain messages that are easy to tune into.
Consider the upper portions of Mud Creek Falls near the border of North Carolina in northeast Georgia.
A narrow, high-pressure cascade hits a massive rock that splits it into two flows, creating the impression of a tuning fork.
This cascade of about 100 feet is hidden, only yards from the golf course that defines the resort community of Sky Valley.
The par-3 15th hole crosses the stream that feeds this falls. But golfers seldom see or hear what's happening in the depths below them.
A forest of trees, rhododendron and rock cliffs are removed from the typical activities of the resort, and the waterfalls is only accessible to those who make a short drive from the clubhouse, past condominiums and houses, a lake and portions of the golf course to a gravel road that drops from view and ends at the base of the falls.
That puts visitors below the "tuning fork" portion of the falls where another cascade forms a traditonal waterfalls of about 12 feet, cascading onto boulders before continuing its downhill journey. To return to, click here.
