Slide Show: 11 must-see waterfalls in West Virginia

The New River sweeps into the maelstrom above Sandstone Falls, captured by Randall Sanger. 

One of West Virginia's largest waterfalls, Sandstone Falls wanders for nearly a mile across the New River, tiered in places and in another dropping the river in a curtained cataract more than 800 feet wide. Here Sanger captures the turbulence as the New turns into a channel near its highest plunge. The falls and surrounding islands are well-known landmarks within the New River Gorge National River.
