Saturday, February 18 — Virgin Falls Photo Field Trip

Virgin Falls

The club’s first scheduled photo field trip is to Virgin Falls, the best local waterfall that you may not have visited.  Why?  Virgin Falls is a 4+ mile hike downhill to get there, and of course, there’s the climb back out.

Virgin Falls is interesting as the water that feeds the falls flows out of a cave, and after the fall, it immediately flows into another cave.  Although quite impressive itself, there are many other photogenic spots along the trail.

As part of the trail follows Big Laurel Creek, a couple waterfalls and cascading water from the creek present many photo opportunities.
