The two RV Gypsies
At Dry Falls
in Nantahala National Forest , NC

June 19, 2019

Dry Falls is a spectacular 65-foot waterfall with two great features: it can be viewed roadside and the two RV Gypsies were able to go down the pathway and some steps, then walk behind the waterfall without getting wet, except for maybe a sprinkle or two. It is located in the Nantahala National Forest. Macon County, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC, along US highway 64 near Highlands. Dry Falls is also known as Upper Cullasaja Falls. The falls has been called Dry Falls for a long time, but has also gone by a few other names, including High Falls, Pitcher Falls, and Cullasaja Falls.

Dry Falls flows on the Cullasaja River through the Nantahala National Forest. It is part of a series of waterfalls on an 8.7-mile stretch of the river that eventually ends with Cullasaja Falls. Dry Falls flows over an overhanging bluff that allowed the two RV Gypsies to walk up under the falls and remain relatively dry when the water flow is low, hence its name. Visitors will get wet if the water flow is high.
