This picture of a raging waterfall was taken in the Narrows area of Eastatoe Creek in March 2007 by Deborah Davis, who lives in Oconee County.
Deborah loves to hike and shared with us this great photo as well as a fascinating story about her time on the trail: “This past Sunday, my hiking partner Linny and I did the Eastatoe Heritage Preserve and went to the Narrows. It was an exhausting climb but well worth it. Totally spectacular but not for the faint of heart. Anytime you hike in the Gorges, expect a weather change. I have done this trail before and had a thunderstorm come out of nowhere. The lightning was popping all over and the rain was so bad we couldn’t even see the next tree. It is normally darker in there because you are on the valley floor, but we had almost no visibility and had to stand perfectly still in fear of a lightning strike. Our boots had water pouring out of the tops. It left as quickly as it came and we made a fast exit.”
