Memories of Fall Creek Falls


Fall Creek Falls and Coon Creek Falls. January 8, 2009.

One advantage of the weekend is that I make myself take some time to get things done in the house rather than work outside.  I have a list of indoor projects that’s even longer than the list of outdoor projects!  If I live to see the end of both of those lists, I’m guaranteed to attain a ripe old age.

I managed to work through a folder of pictures taken this past January when Betsy and I visited Fall Creek Falls State Park here in Tennessee.  As you probably know, that is a very special place for the two of us.  Since it is only about an hour away, we do get there fairly often, although we’ve rarely been there in the winter.

One advantage of going in the winter is that the view of some of the falls is not as obstructed as it is when there are leaves on the trees.  And the water flow is usually better than it is in late summer or autumn.  We even got a bonus by visiting a small waterfall, Wildcat Falls, on the way to the park.  It is usually only a trickle but there was a pretty good flow when we stopped by, so of course we took some pictures there as well.

The picture above is of Fall Creek Falls and its smaller companion, Coon Creek  Falls.  To see more of our visit to Fall Creek Falls click HERE.

    Lovely pics as usual George! I didn’t even notice the small falls until I read your words. Guess I need to pay more attention!

    Nice for Betsy to have such an organized male around the house! I hate to think how long it would take me to get my photos organized and sorted. I work on them off and on. I need to throw out some of the 100’s of bird photos and organize them. After all….how many photos does anyone need of every bird?? You and Betsy could make a book out of all of your waterfall photos….or calendars.

    I loved the photograph. You forgot one of the best parts of trails and waterfalls in winter…there aren’t so many people around.
