The magnitude of one waterfalls is easier to calculate after all leaves have fallen from trees.
At Amicalola Falls in Georgia's Dawson County, water tumbles more than 700 feet, making it the state's highest waterfalls.
This northeast Georgia tourist attraction is about 5 miles from the southern end of the Appalachian Trail.
This image was snapped when temperatures were hovering in the 20s, creating ice formations along the sides of the waterfalls.
Note the walkway and bridge that puts visitors in the middle of Amicalola. From the parking lot provided for visitors to Amicalola State Park, it's all uphill along a steep grade. A paved path curves its way uphill as it parallels the creek created by the falls. Then about 200 steps lead to the bridge that crosses to another set of steps that leads to the top of the falls and a nearby hotel operated by the state of Georgia.
