A Beautiful Shot

I love the green moss on the rocks.

Re: A Beautiful Shot

This "water fall" was right along the trail - unnamed and unmarked. I literally stumbled across it - on a hike I hadn't planned on taking.

that near the Elkmont Campground? If so, I think I took a video of that little falls and pool.

Re: Is...

I know that it is pretty close to the trailhead in Elkmont, and I was still on the gravel road portion of the trail when I took this shot.

Re: Is...

Yep. That's where I figured it was. I did take video of that pool--it was in Winter and I was thinking of what a great place it would be to take a dip in hot weather.

Re: Yes, very nice!

I would love to claim that I spent a lot of time lining this photo up, but I literally stumbled upon this nice little water fall...and the photo just came out incredible. It was a great day hike as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Re: That is ...

It is one of many unnamed cascades along this trail - a very nice hike by the way.

Re: Wow!

Thanks for the kind words. Actually, if you like hiking along streams, there are miles and miles of scenes similar to this in the Smokies. This shot was taken less than 10 feet off the trail. Very easy to get to. I probably have several dozen similar shots posted on SP...check out my album Smoky Mountain Water or my TR, Road Prong Waterfalls...

Happy Trails,
