Moonshiner's Falls

A long exposure photograph of Moonshiner's Falls and a blurb about how it got its name.
Dear Henry,

This waterfall is called Moonshiner's Falls. It is generally the barest spring unless it rains.

I was disappointed when I looked up the name, hoping to get the backstory on house, perhaps some juicy details about the moonshining business that used to thrive in this area.

Nope, there is nothing of the sort.

It may not, in fact, be anything more than a place to stay while hunting. 

From what I can gather, ATV'ers discovered this find only a few years ago and because it was a tiny home tucked in a bluff next to running water, it must be a moonshiner's cave and the name stuck.

The area has too much peace to have been a place of violence.  I truly think it was just a place to get away.

xoxo a.d.
