Yesterday Mike and I took the kids out exploring to find a place, a couple of people had mentioned to us, called Panther Falls. Located not far from the Blue Ridge Parkway, approximately 4 miles down a winding, dirt road in the Washington National Forrest, you will find a small make shift parking area. From there you hike down a trampled path about a half mile to find a beautifully hidden brook that opens up into some great waterfalls and deep swimming holes.
Mike and I aren't brave enough, any longer, to adventure into the waters, but Jacob and Haley had fun. Faith really wanted to go in, but we only allowed her to get her feet wet. It is much too dangerous for someone so small.
When we first arrived, other than a man and his dog, we were the only ones there. It seems to be a place the local college students like to hang, so by the end of our visit there were several people enjoying God's water slides.
