With the new year, came new rains across Western North Carolina. Steady rainfall throughout Macon County last week added inches to the local rivers and lakes. As rainfall amounts began to stack up, the swiftness of local streams increased, providing a beautiful sight for those traveling between Franklin and Highlands.
Both Bridal Veil Falls and Dry Falls were visions with cascading waters pouring over their cliffs. Despite a few days of frigid rain, the beauty that resulted in Macon County's natural landmarks made the grey skies a little easier to brave.
