Steels Creek & Burnthouse Branch Waterfalls

... hike, we changed into bathing suits and took a dip in Upper Creek right by where we had parked. The water was quite cold, but it washed much of the dirt and sweat off. By the time we got out of the water, it was after 7, so we changed and headed back to NC-181 towards Morganton. We were all hungry, so a huge dinner at Las Salsas was in order. After dinner, it was dark and we could see the Super Moon on the drive home.

... We relaxed at the campsite for a little bit, then headed into Boone and had dinner at Coyote Kitchen. Josh had gone to school at Appalachian State and was very familiar with the Boone area, so he suggested this restaurant.

After dinner, we headed back to camp and managed to find quite a bit of firewood and built a nice fire when the sun ...

There are several great primitive campsites along this road and not surprisingly, all ...

... at a couple of smaller cascades between the upper and lower waterfalls. At one spot, there was an area of wet rocks where a large number of Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterflies had congregated. I guess they were drinking from the wet rock or perhaps there was some food there that I couldn’t see. About a quarter-mile from the Upper Waterfall, we came out at the top of the Lower Waterfall. Usually, you can’t ...

Wilson Creek Waterfalls

... while some guys were fishing in the river. After lunch, I climbed out onto the rocks at the base of the falls for some pictures. There’s an interesting “pothole” in the rock next to the waterfall. When we finished lunch, we headed back up to the trail, stopping to see some nice cascades along the creek, and then backtracked to the car and made the short drive further up FR 464 to the trailhead for ...
