One of the many falls along the Tallulah River passing through the Gorge is this section called L’Eau d’Or – French for Water of Gold. This is a view from Overlook #3 on the North Rim trail.
I assume that the name comes from the sun reflecting off the pool above the falls. You can see a little bit of a golden ring in this image. Not quite sure why it was named in French but, uncovering mysteries is one of the most interesting things about visiting beautiful places like this. If anybody knows the history behind this name, let me know!
