Hiking in the Blue Ridge is one of my favorite activities. I love the cool forests, the clear streams, and the many waterfalls. A very convenient area to hike is just north from Peaks of Otter in the Jefferson National Forest of Virginia. Right off the Blue Ridge parkway are trails to 2 beautiful waterfalls, Fallingwater Cascades, and Apple Orchard Falls.
I have chosen to portray the hike along the creek, just before the waterfall drops.
