Crabtree Falls

Piece description from the artist

Crabtree Falls is a 70 ft. cascade on Big Crabtree Creek in western North Carolina. The creek spreads over a rock face with many small ledges, giving it a delicate appearance, before trickling into a clear pool at the base. Though there are hardly any crabtrees here now, in the spring, an impressive array of wildflowers abound on the trail, including four species of trillium. By July, ferns fill the forest and soak in the spray of the falls, with rosebay rhododendron in bloom.
