Default A few recent waterfalls

Not much time for photography or for stopping by here lately - busy with bike repairs and plenty of great family time for Thanksgiving! But did have time for a few brief visits for some nearby waterfalls. We've had plenty of rain lately (far more than usual for autumn in East Tennessee), so plenty of flow in the streams...

Nearby Laurel Run's lower falls is full and lovely in all these rains...

The tiny upper falls is not usually much for a photo, but quite free-flowing lately! (any preference among these varied views?)

Beautiful! I am definitely going to have to visit your area. My niece from Johnson City was in Arkansas for the weekend and she was working on us to come see her. I told her to be careful what she offers.... we might take her up on it.

On upstream a ways is Kiner Creek Falls. In a typical dry autumn season, it's just a lovely little drip. But it is capable of plenty of flow after days of rain...

Here are some views from the left side of the falls.

Here are a few shots from GW's favorite falls - Margarette Falls over in nearby Greene County.

Forecast is for plenty more rain (and maybe some snow) in the coming week, so plenty more chances to enjoy the many rich streams of East Tennessee. Hope to have a bit more time to get out and enjoy them (once all the bike work is finished...) Also hope you enjoyed these glimpses, and that you will share your comments & critique!
