These cascades are found at Twin Falls – part of the Rock Island State Park – on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee. I happen to think that an empty wall in your home or office may be well-served via the acquisition & placement of a framed print featuring this lovely photograph. Just a thought. Visit my gallery for more.
With so much moss and ferns covering a water-drenched gorge wall, it seemed like I was in a rainforest…in Tennessee! Actually, I was visiting the Rock Island State Park, on the Cumberland Plateau near the small town of Spencer. Prints available.
On my first visit to the park, I learned that, in order to access the base of Great Falls, a 30-foot horseshoe cascading waterfall, one should expect to get wet. Most folks in the gorge on the south side of the Caney Fork River near the waterfall are there to swim in a large plunge pool, sporting water shoes and swim attire. Keeping dry can be difficult and entails carefully navigating a very slippery, narrow and moss-covered non-flat surface.
Recalling my previous experience, I decided that, this time, I’d attempt to access the area via a trail originating from across the river, near the Twin Falls parking area. There were several signs along the way stating, ‘No Access Above Falls’, indicating that I was probably headed in the right direction. Beyond a pond and across a forested hillside, I was able to traverse a series of rocks in the river, which led me to the base of the waterfalls – and, I stayed dry!
Photographs 1 & 2 were taken looking back at the trail which I had hiked moments earlier.
If you’d like to accent a wall in your home or office with a print featuring my photography, you can visit my gallery at Fine Art America to select the print type which best suits your interests.
I hope that you find something to purchase and enjoy for years to come. Thanks for visiting!
I recently visited Twin Falls – which is part of the Rock Island State Park, in Tennessee – and took these photographs of the Caney Fork River. Access to this particular area of the park does entail climbing over some large rocks, with impressive views as an incentive to do so.
This is the picturesque Caney Fork River running through the gorge at Rock Island State Park, in Tennessee. It would make a wonderful addition to a wall in your home, with many print types available for review in my gallery at Pixels.
Rock Island State Park is a 883-acre park located on the headwaters of Center Hill Lake at the confluence of the Caney Fork, Collins and Rocky Rivers – in Tennessee. The rugged beauty of the park includes the Caney Fork Gorge below Great Falls Dam. Scenic overlooks – see header image – provide some of the most beautiful views along the Eastern Highland Rim.
While the park contains several different areas of interest, this was my second park-visit in one day – see Burgess Falls State Park. As such, most of my photography originates primarily from within the Caney Fork Gorge.
