Watery Wednesday # 42

Twentymile Creek, Great Smoky Mountains, NC.  June 22, 2009.

Twentymile Creek, Great Smoky Mountains, NC. June 22, 2009.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday, a weekly meme created and hosted by 2sweeetnsaxy of Eyes, Mind, Heart.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

On our anniversary trip we went through the Smoky Mountains along US 129 (Tail of the Dragon) and N.C. 28.  This part of the Smoky Mountains is about as far off the beaten path as it is possible to get, but the views are definitely worth while.

Our route crossed Twentymile Creek, and it looked so inviting that we had to stop and investigate.  We obviously did not find a waterfall, but the cascades along the creek caught our attention and are definitely worth a Watery Wednesday mention.

    The water seems to be flowing so fast! Not for wading, I think, but perfect for sitting on the banks with your feet in the water 🙂
