Forest Bridge

Following a morning rain, I stopped at a bridge in the forest of the Fall Creek Falls State Park, near Spencer, Tennessee, to take this landscape photograph. You can enjoy prints and more by visiting my shops at Pixels and Redbubble. Hope to see you soon – thanks!

Wild Flowers On Cliff

Fog In The Valley


I photographed these flowers in the morning, on the edge of a very tall cliff at the Fall Creek Falls State Park, in Tennessee. The fog lingering in the gorge below adds to the beauty of this stunning landscape capture. If you’d be interested in a print for your home or workplace, then stop by my shops at Pixels and Society 6 to have a look around.

Thanks!

Flashback To Autumn

Cane Creek Cascades

Located in the Fall Creek Falls State Park, near Spencer, Tennessee, Cane Creek Cascades stand 30-feet tall and are easily accessible for visitors to enjoy. This photograph was taken in autumn. Prints are available in my online shops at Pixels and ArtPal. Thanks for visiting!

Return To Fall Creek Falls

Following several days of rain, I had the opportunity to return to the Fall Creek Falls State Park, located in Spencer, Tennessee, which features the state’s tallest waterfall at 256-feet. In contrast to rather dry conditions observed during an earlier visit, the water was substantial – thunderous!

Cane Creek Falls

Upon arrival at the Betty Dunn Nature Center (10821 Park Road, Spencer, TN), guests can enjoy two designated areas overlooking Cane Creek Gorge. Here are pictures of Cane Creek Falls (left, 85-feet), and another waterfall. One overlook provides easy access for handicapped visitors, also.

Note: current park renovations include the suspension bridge across Cane Creek – closed until further notice. As such, visitors will need to drive four miles to the parking area at Fall Creek Falls. From there, hiking trails are open – all the way back to Cane Creek. The following pictures highlight the bridge status in June 2019 and January 2020:

Part Three – Fall Creek Falls

This is my third & final post highlighting Tennessee’s Fall Creek Falls State Park. I’d recommend this park for anyone interested in hiking and/or photography. Consider planning your visit following a period of rain, so that waterfalls will be robust.

Having enjoyed both Cane Creek Falls and Cane Creek Cascades, I was ready to continue my journey. Across Cane Creek, I found the trail rough at times, though could soon hear the sound of falling water emanating from the next gorge ahead.

At an impressive 256-feet, Fall Creek Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern United States. Here are photographs as I approached the falls & gorge:

Here’s a view of Fall Creek Falls, as seen from the designated observation platform:

It’s difficult to convey the true sense of enormity of this gorge and waterfall, so I’ve included the following photographs of people at the base of the falls. The red arrow shows a woman with a backpack, then a closer view moments later via zoom lens:

Before beginning my descent into the gorge, I took a few more photographs from the observation platform:

The walk down to the base of the falls was the most difficult stretch of trail I’d encountered at this park, with plenty of opportunities to trip or twist an ankle. Be careful! Here are a few examples, and also a couple waterfall photographs:

Conclusion

I’ll no doubt be adding more random photographs from my hike at Fall Creek Falls State Park to my gallery at Pixels, over time. In the meantime, stop by for a visit to see some great prints suitable for your home or office!

Enjoy the great outdoors!
