Wet Wilderness

Had the pleasure of enjoying several wet hikes in some nearby Wilderness areas here in Northeast Tennessee.

A few shots from Pond Mountain Wilderness:

The bridge across Laurel Fork

And the falls - 60' high and very full - Laurel Falls:

And a few shots from Rocky Fork Wilderness, out at the northeastern corner - the Lower Higgins Creek drainage:

It's a lush landscape, a temperate rain forest environment:

It's also rich with many clear, clean springs:

And full-flowing streams:

The main falls at Lower Higgins Creek are nearly 100 feet high, and a "thundering" pleasure to experience!

Hope you get to experience these fine wild places for yourself sometime, and that you will share your comments & critique on these views...

Beautiful area to photograph, I bet you feel blessed at times working and hiking there. Great waterfall shots, I can almost hear the roar.

Absolutely gorgeous photos of an area I love. We lived in Nashville for a time and I always looked forward to trips "east". We've been back to East TN several times since then.

Wonderful images.

Nice to see water that's not frozen over for a change.
