Chattahoochee Upper River Falls - Union County | Blairsville, Georgia
Photographer John D. “Jack” Anthony has produced dramatic color images of 116 waterfalls in 15 counties in the North Georgia Mountains. Directions are included to the falls on public lands along with GPS coordinates so that they can be located on Google maps or topographical maps.
Anthony has also compiled a coffee table book with photographs of 100 waterfalls and an 18” x 24 “ poster with images of 20 of the major waterfalls in north Georgia. All of the 20 falls shown on the poster are accessed by maintained trails or have automobile access and 14 have viewing decks. The retail stores that carry the book and poster, along with instructions on how to order via the website or through the mail, are included on the site.
Here is an excerpt from The Waterfalls of North Georgia that describes what the book is about.
“Through 150 color images, photographer Jack Anthony has captured the beauty of 100 waterfalls of north Georgia, a region that stretches from Lookout Mountain in the west to the Chattooga River in the east. High average rainfalls totaling over 50 inches to almost 80 inches a year in the northeast corner of the state, combined with the heights of the southern Appalachians, provide ideal conditions for creation of these numerous and beautiful waterfalls.
While many of the waterfalls require some effort to reach, Jack’s images enable you to engage in virtual tours of your own to these remarkable wonders of nature. Accompany Jack on his visits to the waterfalls, in all seasons and in varied weather conditions.”
