Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Photo #45 Zahnd Falls, Georgia

Zahnd Falls — What better way to end the work week than by sharing a beautiful waterfall shot of Zahnd Falls on Lookout Mountain in Walker County, GA. Today also happens to be the day that Georgia was admitted into statehood as the 4th U.S. state in 1788. This waterfall, along with many other unusual geologic features at the Zahnd Natural Area, were developed on Pennsylvanian age Sewanee Conglomerate.
