Kanawha Falls + New River

"New River is formed by the union of its north and south forks in Watauga County, North Carolina (NC). From this junction, the New flows northeastward across the state line into Virginia, and at Radford, VA, turns abruptly northwestward across western Virginia and West Virginia to its junction with Gauley River, in Fayette County, just above Kanawha Falls, in Kanawha County. Below the junction with the Gauley, the river is known as Kanawha River."
