October , 2015 - Well, we're nearing the end of October, so it's time for picks from our annual trip to North Carolina for the NCFIC Conference!
Our traditional 'church hike' was almost cancelled due to the rainy weather that Patricia brought to the area. Thankfully the weather cleared up on the second day.
So, this morning most of us piled into the cars and caravanned to DuPont state park.

Bridges...yes, there are multiple.

Thanks to the rainy weather, the falls were really gushing.
These photos really can't capture the sound of the rush of the water or the spray that was drenching us, but this track from Spotify adds a little ambience.
And here's a video showing the falls in more normal conditions.

Yes, some scenes from the Hunger Games were filmed here at Triple Falls
and nearby at Bridal Veil Falls.
This scene was filmed from the bottom of the falls...
somewhere near that sign in the photo below.

...with open arms! ♪
(Sorry, it was the first thing that popped into my head!)
