Fearless or crazy? Little River Falls attracts thrill-seekers (video)

Fearless or crazy?

This week, our friends at the Canyon Center shot this video of a kayaker “going over” Little River Falls.  According to the center, the falls set records (4000 CFS) for flow at this time of the year.  It also encouraged thrill-seekers to literally take “the plunge.”

Goodness, what a difference 8 months makes.

If you are not into risking your life on the falls, the JSU Little River Canyon Center has an incredible lineup of events this Summer. Check them out.  Our favorite is the upcoming Bluegrass on the Rim this coming June 10th.
