The Destruction of a Beautiful Waterfall

Twin Falls on the Thompson River
Transylvania County, NC
April 29th, 2006

Same Spot
April 18th, 2009
As you can see, the area on across stream from where
I am standing has been completely stripped of trees.
A massive concrete foundation has been poured,
which will soon turn into another multi-million dollar monstrosity!
It won't be long before the spot where I was standing
is also stripped of all it's natural beauty,
along with the lot just downstream (to the left of the photos) .
Sure, the waterfall will still be there, but it will never be the same.
Soon, the general public will never again be allowed to visit this spot.
Instead it will be left to a handful of rich people
willing to destroy a beautiful waterfall by
forking over $500,000 - $600,000 for one of these lots,
cutting down all the trees and vegetation,
and building a multi-million dollar monstrosity!

Good grief.

People need to be shot dead over that one.
