For the Independence Day Weekend, we headed out to the Wilson Creek area again for
some more waterfall fun. Friday, we spent the day in Raleigh and went to Sandy’s parents for a cookout. Then very early Saturday morning, we headed out to Wilson Creek, arriving at the Lost Cove Trailhead on FR-981 right at 9 o’clock. We were meeting Josh and Marissa and the dogs, who had camped ...

Then we headed back to camp and built a fire before retiring for the ...

... boulder field just below the main drop. Hebron Colony Falls is an interesting waterfall - there’s no huge drop, but rather a countless number of small cascades over, under, and around massive boulders in the creek.
