Nantahala River

The Nantahala River is in western North Carolina. It is a popular river for rafting and canoes. Nantahala is Cherokee, it translates into Land of the Noonday Sun. This name comes from the high cliffs and steep gorge walls along the river that shut out the direct light of the sun until nearly noon. There is a cache here called "Land of the Noonday Sun" but we didn't find that one.

Some of my ancestors lived in the Nantahala district in or near Macon County, North Carolina. Beautiful country!
