Greasy Creek

When we visited Black Rock Mountain State Park a couple of weeks ago, we went looking for a waterfall that is on Greasy Creek near Black Rock Lake.  The image shown here was what I saw of the creek, which has a number of little cascades which I took to be what people said were the “falls”.  Apparently, there are actually some true waterfalls nearby but I missed the path for that.

It was nice to wander the pathways around the lake and admire the little stream flowing through groves of mountain laurel.  The woods were pleasantly shady and cool on a hot August day and the walk was enjoyable even though we didn’t locate the falls we were looking for.  Maybe we can make an autumn trip back up here and see it again when the leaves are changing.  I think that would be a fantastic opportunity for some nice landscapes.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
