Little Piney Creek

With low water during summer months, I decided to leave the trail and explore the great outdoors, following Little Piney Creek upstream toward Upper Piney Falls. Though I later fell on my keister (d’oh!), this decision allowed me to enjoy many beautiful sights in a remote gorge environment.

Case in point, this photograph highlights unusual geological outcroppings, a rocky creek bed (underwater) with surface reflections of overhanging trees, and sunshine streaming from around the bend.

Prints are available in my gallery at Pixels, where customers can select between framed, canvas, art, metal, poster, wood, acrylic and tapestry. And, framed prints may be customized to make it your own! Also, you can discover more items in my shop at Redbubble. Thanks!

Upper Cane Creek Gorge

Autumn foliage lines upper Cane Creek gorge, located at the Fall Creek Falls State Park, on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee. Prints available. Makes a great gift-giving idea, too.

Rockhouse Creek Falls

Though sometimes dry, I visited Fall Creek Falls State Park following a period of rain, and was pleased to enjoy Rockhouse Creek Falls, standing 125-feet tall and feeding into Cane Creek Gorge. Guests may visit my shop to find a variety of prints available.

Fall Creek Falls

Following a period of rain, the clouds broke and sunshine filtered into the gorge and onto the 256-foot tall Fall Creek Falls, as seen from a nearby bluff. If you’d be interested in a print or other items featuring this photograph, then visit my gallery at Pixels. Thanks!

Falling Water Falls

Heading home from Georgia, I traveled northwest of Chattanooga, Tennessee, to visit the 110-foot waterfall called Falling Water Falls.

I found a parking spot – one of six available – as I arrived, and was soon at the overlook above the falls. It’s a very short hike along Little Falling Water Creek, on top of the Cumberland Escarpment, and the view is expansive! It is, however, difficult to see the waterfall except by looking down over the edge – probably a great location for photography using a drone.

Photographs

I asked two local hikers (Logan, Austin) about access to the base of the falls, though quickly decided against climbing down a rope affixed to the side of a cliff.

Hemlock Falls Trail

I recently had the opportunity to enjoy a visit to the 90-foot tall Hemlock Falls, located near Trenton, Georgia, in the Cloudland Canyon State Park – on the western edge of Lookout Mountain – on the Cumberland Plateau. The park has a $5/vehicle entrance fee.

Leaving Knoxville, Tennessee at 5:00 a.m., it was a 2 hour drive and I was the first person to arrive at the trail. By the time I returned to my vehicle, however, the parking lot was full.

Suggestion

If you arrive early, come prepared with the correct fee: an envelope with 16-quarters + a $1 bill isn’t easy to pass through the slot in the fee-deposit box. D’oh!

During my hike, I met several interesting people – a Pastor and his wife from Knoxville, a couple traveling on vacation from Ohio, and an individual from Marietta, Georgia, who was filming the canyon using a drone.

Despite being only 1.1 miles out and back, visitors must traverse 600 steps into the canyon. I was pleased that the trails were in good condition, and the hike wasn’t too difficult. For those in need of a rest, however, several benches have been conveniently situated along the trail.
