Upper Desoto Falls

Upper Desoto Falls

Desoto Falls, which I posted yesterday, and Upper Desoto Falls are named after Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto. De Soto's exploration travelled through the area, likely south of here, but according to legend, some artifacts were found near the falls.

Today, this waterfall is part of Desoto State Park, which contains several waterfalls. The Main Desoto Falls is just a few feet downstream from here, and an old 1920's hydroelectric dam is just upstream and is barely seen in the top left corner of this picture. A short paved path leads to the overlook where you can get this view of the falls.
