In early October Betsy and I met my daughter Kelly and her husband Chuck in Cookeville, Tennessee, to do some hiking at nearby Burgess Falls State Park.

The park contains three waterfalls, but the trailhead for the main trail begins upstream at Falling Water Cascades.  That’s the trail we hiked, so we took the time to visit the cascades as well.

The water in river was low, but the cascades were still pretty.

There was enough water in one channel to create beautiful flowing waters.

Even the shallow water covering the rock river bed took on a dreamy experience.
