Default Autumn Falls

Autumn is usually the driest season here in East Tennessee, and so not the best season for waterfalls. Some of my recent trails took me near a few low, but lovely falls. Here's a tiny mossy falls on Birchcamp Prong.

Red Fork Falls is a 60' high waterfall flowing off of Unaka Mountain. The slippery trail runs right along the side of the falls - and is definitely NOT for the faint hearted!
