Bad Branch Falls

Bad Branch Falls.
Yesterday I did a presentation to the Foothills Photography Group in Clarkesville, Georgia. What a great group of super nice folks. I decided to take advantage of the trip to northeast Georgia and visit some rivers and waterfalls. I went to the Upper Tallulah River, which is a story for another day. Then I decided to go to Bad Branch Falls. BBF is an easy 5 minute walk from a gravel road, however it took me almost an hour to do the 5 minute walk. I had been there before and thought I remembered exactly where it was located. I remembered you find the powerline pole with the plates on it that has a trail directly across from it. I found it and started walking up the trail. It seemed a little different than I remembered, which doesn’t mean I was lost by any account, just not totally recalling the trail. After wandering about a 1/2 mile or more through the woods, trailblazing as I walked, I was convinced the waterfall was victim of the droughts. I made my way back to my car, dirty, scratched and sweaty. I got into the car and went to find a spot to turn around. As I rounded the next curve, low and behold, another pole with plates and a clear distinct trail across from it. I parked, got out, hiked the 5 minute walk to the falls and made a few images. I returned to my car, whooped, but laughing at my blunder, but happy to see a beautiful waterfall.
