During my quick trip up to the Gorge on Tuesday, I stopped at Kanawha Falls and grabbed a few shots. The river was running about 2 to 3 feet higher than normal due to recent rains. Not a flood by any means, but enough to make an impressive scene. Kanawha Falls is actually a hybrid natural/man-made landmark, with a concrete low-head dam meandering along the top of the falls. This creates a reservoir that was once used to drive a small hydroelectric plant (visible in the old brick buildings on the left).
