Many people have a preconceived notion that the North Carolina mountains are host to merely three seasons. It’s thought that autumn’s changing colors transition straight to spring with little sign of resident life to take in the serene winter scenery. Connestee Falls would like to put this rumor to an end.
Situated amongst the majestic western North Carolina Mountains, Connestee Falls boasts a winter wonderland as picturesque as anyone could wish. And we have the pictures to prove it!
These photos were taken by some of our talented Connestee Falls resident photographers. After baring witness to these beautiful images, we think the rumors of three seasons can be put to rest. They document the wonderland that is a Brevard County winter at Connestee Falls. We want to thank our residents for sharing their photos, and we hope they inspire everyone interested in Connestee Falls to consider a winter visit.
