Watery Wednesday: Collins Creek Falls

Collins Creek Falls, Great Smoky Mountains, North Carolina. January 31, 2012.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

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

There are many small waterfalls in the Smoky Mountains.  Many are in the back country and can only be reached by hiking.  But others can be seen from the road, if you know where to look.

Collins Creek Falls is right alongside the Newfound Gap Road between Cherokee, North Carolina, and Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  It’s small, but pretty, especially in the Winter and Spring.

    Hi George, Betsy’s and yours posts follow each other in my dashboard. I guess you are playing on who will be able to post fast! Regarding this falls, i wish it is not cut at the bottom, don’t you have a wider angle shot? I love it whole.

    It is a super waterfall and a super shot. So close to the road is a bonus.

    Are you sure that is the correct name?
    I was absolutely convinced it was called the
    “Big Colin Escarpment Falls”????
    Magnificent shot of a delightful cascade of water.
    (Vanity only strikes once a day – ha ha!)

    Happy belated birthday! Glad you and Betsy can still get out there and find more waterfalls for us to enjoy. At least there are no flies or mosquitoes at this time of year!
