02) Chasing Waterfalls -- Sid's Falls



 
In the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, water falls abound in the surrounding environs of Walhalla. A near cascade has been given the moniker Sid's Falls.  
This name is in honor of Sid Ballenger who was a well liked and respected Walhalla High School teacher.  The number of students who he encouraged and guided to
success are legions.  He and his wife Caroline were pillars of the community.  Caroline ran a dance studio which became a gathering place for young people. 
Sid Ballenger was an enthusiastic outdoors person and documenter of local waterfalls. Sid's Falls is an appropriate tribute for this "Chaser of Waterfalls".
