Watery Wednesday # 24

The Caney Fork River at Rock Island State Park, Tennessee.

The Caney Fork River at Rock Island State Park, Tennessee.

This is my entry for Watery Wednesday.  To see more pictures of our watery world, or to join in the fun and post your own pictures, click HERE.

The picture above is of the Caney Fork River in Rock Island State Park, here in Tennessee.  The Caney Fork flows through the park.  This picture was taken just downstream from the base of Twin Falls.  The reason the river looks so placid is that the river does not go over Twin Falls, but past the falls.

Although we haven’t done a great deal of hiking in Rock Island, the park does contain three major waterfalls and a couple of minor falls.  It’s another of the wonderful parks in the Tennessee park system.
