Default Best waterfalls in the US (photos encouraged)

We all know about Niagara and Yosemite. What are some of the other waterfalls that you appreciate in the US?

Here's my favorite. Havasu Falls in Arizona

Havasu and Mooney falls in the Grand canyon are beautiful. There's another waterfall in the Grand canyon called Cheyava Falls. Very beautiful and is over 800ft. Pacheta falls in Arizona has got to be the most beautiful though.

The High Falls of the Genesee River which flow right through downtown Rochester. The largest waterfall within any city's downtown, i believe.

Bridal Veil Fall in NC isn't at all spectacular, but it is neat because you can literally drive right up to it.

No wonder my picture hunt through flickr for "Mackinac" Falls was difficult.

Sliding Rock Falls (NC) One of my favorites because you can actually get in to the water, swim and slide down the rocks!



Looking Glass Falls (NC)
