Wildcat Falls, sort of...

....from the top. From what I remember of this one, it's a sheer drop and no easy way down to the bottom. It's along the same cliff as Buttermilk & Viola Falls which Have been posted recently.

I took this shot as a couple of hiking friends looked carefully over the edge at the falls. It may be close to 100 feet of drop, I know it's a long way down.

Yeah, I took the same view as your companions, but didn't have the guts to hold my :camera: over the edge for a shot. Of the three falls on this hike, this one had the least water when I was there. I'd sure like to find the bottom of this one after some rain.
