On down the River

Today we continue on down the River towards Chimney Rock from Hickory Nut Gorge where I stopped and got a couple shots of the Waterfalls at Chimney Rock and the Chimney Rock Tower with the flag where people go up to view the surrounding area from a very High advantage.

The Falls at Chimney Rock is where some of the movie "The Last of The Mohegans" was filmed, there is a path that you can walk from the tower to under the falls, and this is where some of the filming was done if you remember the scene of them running and passing under the falls while fighting off their pursuers.

Now we continue on down the River to Lake Lure where upon arriving we are greeted by some very Large Vultures at a picnic area.

" Lunch is on Boys"


"You guys eat...I will keep watch"



" Oh Gee...I missed that branch again"




Some ducks that were lazing around the foot path in the park



This fellow was a very friendly guy..seemed to actually like to pose for me.


"Hey Jim...you see any fish yet?"


Some Canada Geese just across the canal that runs through the park.

Those are some fantastic shots! I never thought of vultures flying down to eat picnic leftovers!
