Watery Wednesday # 36

Greenbrier Cascade, Great Smoky Mountains. March 28, 2009.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday, a weekly meme created and hosted by 2sweeetnsaxy of Eyes, Mind, Heart.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

As you know, Betsy and I love and collect waterfalls.  But  we also like cascades and fast-flowing rivers.  After two years of drought rain has finally returned to east Tennessee, and the rivers are close to normal for the first time in that period.

The picture above was taken along the Little Pigeon River in the Great Smoky Mountains near Greenbrier, Tennessee.  We had been at the same spot in November, but then there had been more boulders than waters in the stream.  But when this picture was taken, March, 2009, the water was rushing over the boulders.  The sight and the sound of all the white water was a beautiful part of our watery world.

    So very pretty – I couldn’t find Greenbrier on the map, so I’m guessing it’s a very small little town. But that scene sure is beautiful!

    Tennessee is such a lovely state. My daughter used to live there so I got to visit several times. That is a beautiful river, I love rocky rivers, makes the river much more interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    Another perfect capture of a water scene…what a library you two must have!!
    Love the fact that you have to hike back in to nature to see most of these little ones!

    If I had extreme-grip booties, I’d be on those rocks in a second! Looks fantastic, George. Glad the water levels are now high. I always get worried when I see dry river beds.
