Waterloo Falls

Waterloo Falls, Cookeville, Tennessee. February 23, 2008,

As you know if you’ve read this blog very long, Betsy and I collect waterfalls.  We started back in 2001 when we were dating.  We had gone to Fall Creek Falls here in Tennessee for the day, and while viewing the waterfalls there we realized we were falling in love.

We began our waterfall collection in honor of that day.  Since then we have visited 343 different waterfalls.  Some of the waterfalls are very well known — Niagara Falls is a good example.  Some we found because they are listed in waterfall books.  Some we found out about on the internet, and others we have just accidently stumbled across by driving on back roads.

An example of a waterfall (actually two waterfalls) we found through the internet is the waterfall above.  Betsy did a search for waterfalls near us and came across a mention of Waterloo Falls north of Cookeville.  I checked our books and couldn’t find any reference to it, but Betsy was able to get some general directions.

So one Saturday we set out to find Waterloo Falls if at all possible.  We were successful and were rewarded by a second, smaller waterfall upstream from the main waterfall.  When we got back home we found that the smaller waterfall is known as Upper Waterloo Falls.

    I think I like your story much more than this pretty Waterloo Falls. How wonderful to share a passion with each other (aside from a passion FOR each other!). I am always inspired by the relationship that you and Betsy share. Bless you both.

    I wish you both a beautiful weekend!
