We detoured on our way to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, to visit a drive-through waterfall. U.S. Highway 64 originally hugged the mountain and ran right under the waterfall about 2.3 miles north of Highlands, North Carolina.
Bridal Veil Falls
Now a short section of the original roadway offers the opportunity to drive through the falling water, near where a newer section of the highway avoids the falls.
Traffic, uneven terrain, and a major attack of being a total fraidy cat kept me seated in our van while Husband Walter moved around capturing the falls and our van from different perspectives.

My “from-where-I-sit” photos in this post and Hubby’s photos on his blog here all remind me of the happy day we had.
The idea of photos “from-where-I-sit” originated many moons ago from a post by Sandra at her blog Mad Snapper. Her photos prompted me to look at my surroundings more intently. The idea offered a post-stroke challenge that engaged me in the early days of stroke recovery when I was in a wheelchair.
It is also an approach to photography that chases away occasional frustration with myself when I don’t feel confident that post-stroke balance is up to my moving around independently to take photos safely.
Thank you, Mad Snapper!
