Spring Break Trip Day Two: DuPont Forest

On Day Two of our Spring Break trip to North Carolina, we headed down to the DuPont Forest to view some of the the spectacular waterfalls there.  It could not have been a more beautiful day.

Hooker Falls

This waterfall was featured in an exciting scene of Last of the Mohicans where a canoe goes over the falls.

Triple Falls

This falls is the scene of one of the great lines from Last of the Mohicans;
Heyward:  "There's a war going on in the east.  How is it you are going west?"
Hawkeye: "Well, you face north, and then real sudden-like turn left."

This scene from Last of the Mohicans was filmed along the left side of High Falls
