Tuesday was a beautiful day here in eastern Tennessee, so Betsy and I decided to drive over to Great Smoky Mountains National Park to check out some waterfalls. We haven’t been over there since late October and we hoped that the rains of the past couple of weeks would have replenished some of the streams in the mountains.
We visited several falls that we had seen before and then later in the afternoon drove through Wears Valley. We drove along Cove Creek for a short
distance, and, seeing a fair amount of water flowing, stopped to walk along the creek. We enjoyed the cascade shown above and then noticed a small sign pointing to Secret Falls. Secret Falls was unknown to us, so we just had to investigate. A short walk led us to the pretty little waterfall shown on the right.
It was as close to a perfect day as we could possibly get — cool temperatures, a brilliant blue sky, and the sound of rushing water. What more could a person ask for?
