Haunted House

In this haunted house, there are two sets of stairways but no exit. Yes, pretty scary. But fear not, as my shops at Redbubble, Society 6 and Fine Art America offer an escape into merchandise available for your amusement. Make sure to visit, if you can find your way out of this labyrinth 👻

Watch Your Step

If you’re following this concrete stairway into nature, I hope that you don’t mind getting your feet wet – watch your step! This photo was taken at the Obed Wild And Scenic River National Park, in Tennessee. Prints are available in my gallery.

Thanks for stopping by!

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.

The Stone Door

Located in the Savage Gulf State Natural Area of Tennessee, The Stone Door features a stairway inside of a 10-foot wide by 100-foot deep crack running from the top of the escarpment into the gorge below. Prints available.
