Luftee Overlook

I recently enjoyed a sunrise from the Luftee Overlook, located along US-441 South, in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.

Only one mile beyond Clingman’s Dome, this overlook faces due east. I arrived 1/2 hour before sunrise and was greeted by several photographers with tripods, set up on the sidewalk and waiting.

If you’d be interested in a print, please visit my gallery at Fine Art America to select the print type which best suits your wishes – framed, canvas, art, poster, metal, acrylic or wood.

I’ve also made a variety of other products available with this photograph, in my shop at Redbubble – check it out.

Have a nice day!

Located in Cookeville, Tennessee, this waterfall is referred to as City Lake Falls. Smaller than many falls, it’s nevertheless an appealing location to visit – only 1/4 mile from the parking area. Prints available.

City Lake Falls

Some waterfalls can be visited only after an exhaustive hike over rugged terrain. Others, such as City Lake Falls, are much easier to observe, requiring only 1/4 mile walk through the forest on a paved trail. Located in Cookeville, Tennessee, you can enjoy this waterfall photography on a print from my gallery – all year long!

Return To Cummins Falls

Located on the Cumberland Plateau along the Blackburn Fork River, near Cookeville, Tennessee, Cummins Falls stands 75-feet tall, representing the eighth largest waterfall (by volume of water) in the state.

Because it’s so popular, the state park has instituted an inexpensive online permitting system, required in advance for all visitors interested in hiking the gorge. The trail to the waterfall is 1.5 miles, and hikers can expect to get wet because, at points, the riverbed is the trail – roughly knee deep.

The area is prone to flash flooding, so children twelve & under must be accompanied by an adult, as well as wear a life jacket while at the falls or swimming. In case of emergency, signs are posted which indicate safe levels during a flood, and there is an evacuation route.

There’s a waterfall overlook (no permit required). Ample parking. Restrooms available. Water shoes recommended. Dogs allowed. Bring your camera to capture an abundance of scenic beauty!

Rainforest In Tennessee

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.

Return To Laurel Falls

Located along Fighting Creek Gap Road in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, not far from the Sugarlands Visitor Center near Gatlinburg, Laurel Falls is a popular tourist attraction.

It’s an easy 2.6 mile out and back hike along a paved trail, though the pavement it quite eroded. Measuring both upper and lower sections of Laurel Falls – which are divided by a railed pathway – the waterfall stands 80-feet tall and provides several scenic viewpoints, if one is willing to climb to the base.

Signs At Trailhead

On my visit, I was the first car parked in the lot…by 3 minutes. Capturing photographs without people in the picture requires one to arrive early, so I showed up 1/2 hour before sunrise. Bears are common in this area, though less so once a steady stream of hikers are present. No water. No restrooms.

View From Trail

History

The trail was completed in 1932 at a cost of $590, providing fire crews access to the Cove Mountain area. Three years later, a fire tower was completed. By 1960, frequent trail use and erosion were problematic, and, as part of the 1963 Accelerated Works Projects grant to the Department of Interior, the trail was paved. Today, with over 800 miles of trails within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, only four trails are paved for a total of three miles.
