Beauty in All Seasons
The four seasons have been inspiring the artist in all of us since the first pink blossom signaled winter's end and the first green leaf turned a flaming red. That creative tradition continues today at Chimney Rock, where all four seasons unfold in glorious splendor. There are scientific reasons for the Park's distinctive seasons: moist microclimates created on the high cliffs by the spume and spray of Hickory Nut Falls; the warming, thermal belt effect on the densely-forested lower slopes; the remarkable 1,700-foot range in elevations. But even science has its limits when it comes to nature — sometimes it's best simply to enjoy the magic of the moment.
