postheadericon Triple Falls ~ Asheville Waterfalls ~ {Photography}

 

Triple Falls is located in Dupont State Forest, 40 miles southwest of Asheville, NC

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good To Know:

 

  • You may recognize this waterfall from the widely popular movie the Hunger Games.  This particular waterfall has the scene where Peeta is hiding in the mud and Katniss finds him.
  • Sky Top Orchard is nearby and a great place to pick apples (seasonal).
  • For the outdoorsy types, I highly recommend camping at Black Forest Family Campground if you plan on exploring the area!
  • If you’re visiting in the summer and want to plunge into the icy mountain water check out Sliding Rock, A Natural 60 ft. Waterslide in the NC Mountains
  • Also visit High Falls and Hooker Falls which are on the same hiking loop!  I wrote about all three a few years ago!  Visit that post here.

 

     


    postheadericon Beaches Worth Checking Out – Favorite Five

    Five of My All Time Favorite Beaches

     

    1.  Kaanapali Beach ~ Maui, Hawaii:  Voted my #1 because of its sugary soft sand, light waves, sandy bottom, beautiful coral, abundance of marine life, and breathtakingly beautiful backdrop.  Black Rock is known for its frequent visits by sea turtles, too!

     

     

     

    2.  Crystal Cove State Park ~ Laguna Beach, California:  Voted my #2 because of its quaint feel, unique tidal pools, and fun character.  Whether you’re looking to sunbathe, grab a bite to eat, horseback ride, or explore, this beach has it all!

     

     

     

    3.  Bean Point ~ Anna Maria Island, Florida:  Voted my #3 because of its private and unspoiled feel.  Just off shore is a sandbar where you can find sand dollars, conch shells, or possibly see a manatee swimming by.  Anna Maria Island has many beautiful beaches, lots of activities, and good restaurants!

     

     

    4.  Black Sand Beach ~ Maui, Hawaii:  Voted #4 because there are not many black sand beaches making this a unique and beautiful spot.  Black lava rocks, black sand, and deep blue water make this beach a favorite for its picturesque quality!  It’s located off of the Road to Hana, one of the most beautiful drives in the world!

     

     

     

    5.  Lanikai Beach ~ Oahu, Hawaii:  Voted my #5 for its relaxation and beauty.  There are no facilities and it’s located in a residential community, but it is by far one of the most serene beaches I’ve ever been to!
