The scenic Bald River Falls stands 90-feet tall and is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area. Located in the Cherokee National Forest of the Southern Appalachian Mountains of eastern Tennessee, this photograph was taken on a bridge from the road, a short distance from parking.
I recently enjoyed a scenic drive to Norris Dam, located along the Clinch River between Anderson & Campbell counties, Tennessee.
The hydro-electric dam opened on March 4, 1936, after nearly 2.5 years of construction. It stands 265-feet tall by 1860-feet wide, and has a maximum generating capacity of 126 megawatts.
Over The Edge
Norris Dam State Park includes more than 4000 acres on Norris Reservoir, the largest reservoir on a tributary of the Tennessee River. The park also operates a fully equipped marina with boat ramp, which is available to the general public.
