Kanawha Falls

Kanawha Falls can be seen from Route 60 at Gauley Bridge, WV. During the Civil War, high swift water here prevented the Union Army from trapping General Floyd's troops.

Today the scenic area is popular with tourists. I noticed the Glen Ferris Inn nearby.

An old power plant interrupts the view but this spot is still worth a visit. The pounding of the water is impressive.

Nearby is Cathedral Falls. Frank and I stopped here for a few minutes and a young couple pulled in and asked if we would take their picture. We did, and they took ours in return.
