Do you know what a Weir is?
Well, before I had visited this Weir, I did not know what it was or what it did. My daughter showed me a spot in Hayesville, NC that I never knew existed, until now. And, I found it fascinating and wanted to share it with all of you!
A Weir is placed in a river to provide turbulence to the water for the wildlife, flaura, fauna, and fish. This churning water adds in oxygen to the water system and helps the river to keep things a healthy environment for those that live and need the water to survive.
A word of caution, it is not safe to swim or boat near a Weir due to the whirlpools and downpull in the water near the weir. You could be trapped beneath the water very easily!! And, it is deep near the Weir.
If you get to Hayesville and happen to visit the Dam, be sure to also visit the Weir. The Weir is located very close in proximity to the Dam and is a short walk from the parking lot to the Weir either up, to the side, or beneath it.
Enjoy your surroundings and try to visit all that you can!

Bryson City, NC is the main train station for the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. At certain times you can ride Thomas the Tank Engine and snap photo’s of his friends or take a ride on the Polar Express! Each season holds different themes and attractions. But wait, there is a lot more to do than ride a train…
This town is scenic, family friendly,
and just plain adorable.
Lovely shops and eateries are within walking distance from the train, up-close views of the train and you can purchase tickets to ride the train, majestic mountain views all around, watch a play at the old-time Bryson City community theater, watch the flowing waters of the Tuckasegee River, go white water river rafting or zip down some zip lines, stay in one of the many local log cabins, hike the Appalachian trail, and even visit their Deep Creek community, which hosts an entrance into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. For the outdoor enthusiast, there is plenty to do and see!
The library here has a different system than the libraries in most western NC towns/cities. So you will most likely have to get a new card! Be sure to return any borrowed materials, since most Western NC libraries have very little funding to acquire new books and reading materials. You can help any local library with the purchase of used books on sale at the Friends of the Library sales and/or their used book stores.
Local Churches are plenty, lovely to visit, and photograph. And they even have a hospital in this small town, so if an emergency arises, they have got you covered!
