Watery Wednesday #124: Waterloo Falls

Waterloo Falls, Hardy, Tennessee. February 23, 2008.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

Waterloo Falls is an impressive 35-foot curtain of water across a stream approximately 100 feet wide.  As you can see, there was quite a bit of water going over the falls when we visited.

This waterfall wasn’t listed in any of our waterfall books, but Betsy found out about it on-line.  It’s only about an hour from our house, so we took a drive to see if we could find it.  We obviously were successful.

A nice bonus was a second, smaller waterfall upstream from Waterloo Falls.  All-in-all we had a great day finding things to share on Watery Wednesday.

    WATER

    Water in a drop of rain,
    Water swirling down the drain;
    Water clinging to the trees,
    Water filling up the seas;
    Water frozen, water free,
    Water is the stuff for me!
