Pembroke, VA, USA – April 2012
I managed to make the 4 mile round trip hike taking longer than most people but it was well worth the effort.
Internet Info:Cascades Recreation Area, Jefferson National Forest: About 150,000 visitors a year visit the Cascades. Without question, Cascade Falls is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Virginia and possibly on the entire East Coast. Little Stony Creek falls over a vertical cliff in several different streams. Several streams cascade a couple times on the way down while others fall the whole distance of the falls. The 69 ft. falls crash into a large pool surrounded by two hundred foot cliff walls from which large ice formations hang in the winter. The scene is both breathtaking and peaceful as the falls combine both power and beauty. The falls are also fairly easy to view, with wooden stairs and platforms on one side of the pool allowing a visitor to get very close to the falls as well as allowing a photographer many different angles for photographs.

    Nicely taken photograph Judy. I have heard of the falls but have never seen them personally. Reason number 18,742 why VA is the beast and prettiest state in the union!!!!! Leaving early tomorrow morning to fly to VA to visit my mom in Williamsburg… be flying back Friday. Looking forward to being in God’s country again.


  • Rog, thanks so much. Have a great trip. Williamsburg is a great place especially during 4th of July holiday. I also like Busch Garden roller coasters. I have to agree, VA is the place for me.

  • Thanks Sherri! Munchkin is eating a bit but not enough for my satisfaction. Still on antibiotics and moving slow. Am giving her extra love and attention for sure. The stray cat, Buddy, is a lot better and fiesty as ever. LOL.

    This is lovely. I’m glad you got there and found water. I did a trek to one of our falls a couple of years ago, only to find very little water falling.

  • Thanks Eve! I had that happen at Dismal Falls.
