Down Memory Lane: Burgess Falls

2001 -- Burgess Falls

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

Betsy and I had our first ‘big’ date at Fall Creek Falls in late April, 2001.  That was the beginning of our waterfall ‘collection’.

The next additions to our collection came about a month later.  We went to Burgess Falls State Park near Cookeville, Tennessee.  This park, which is only about an hour from our present home in Fairfield Glade, contains three waterfalls, and we hiked along the river to all three.

The collage above shows some scenes from that visit to Burgess Falls.  The picture on the upper left shows the Falling Waters River above the three falls.  The other picture on the top shows Burgess Falls — the main waterfall in the park — as we hiked down to the base.

The picture on the bottom left shows Betsy enjoying the mist at the base of Burgess Falls.  Next is a view of the brink of Burgess Falls, followed by a side view of the falls as we hiked to the base.

    I can’t think of a more perfect first date than to sit near a waterfall together. Our first date was sitting by a pretty stream on Dartmoor.
