Default Wet Scenes from Rocky Fork

Much time spent in Rocky Fork Wilderness area recently - continuing preparations for our newest Tennessee State Park, and sharing nature discovery with school groups there as well.

These triple falls are probably the most photographed scene in the entire 10,000 acres. Besides being a lovely scene, this spot is only a very short walk from the main entrance, and very close to the main trail.

Here's a view of the main stream, just downstream of the main entrance.

Just for fun, here are three views of one portion of the main stream, taken with 21, 28, 35 and 50mm lenses.

There are many smaller streams draining the rich, hilly landscape of Rocky Fork. Here's a small sampling of the diversity of tiny creeks and branches.

And one of the multitude of fern species, this one along a small creekbank.

It's a lush green habitat, even in the wintertime!
