8 Waterfalls in 5 Days

During the spring in Tennessee everything begins to turn green and the waterfalls are full off water. These being 2 off my favorite things in this world, the color green and waterfalls, I decided to set out on a mission to hike to some of my favorite waterfalls around the state and see what conditions I could find. 

I decided to being this trip on the Eastern side of the state and make my way back west over the course of 4 days. The morning of my first day in the Smoky Mountains I stumbled across a little family of bears and they were the cutest thing I have ever seen. Cute, and slightly scary. But mainly cute. 

 There were about 5 cubs and this momma bear. Most of the time all you would see was the tall grass moving as the babies scurried along. Periodically they would stand on their legs and look around.

I spent my first 2 days of this trip in the Smokies. It was mostly cold and rainy, but I was lucky enough to have some moments of golden light and beauty during sunset,

After this it was time for me to head West to the first waterfall on my list, Ozone Falls.

Waterfall #2 was at Fall Creek Falls State Park. There are actually 3 waterfalls here, although only 2 were full off water. This was my 4th or 5th time visiting these waterfalls and I have yet to see Fall Creek Falls full of water. Hopefully one of these days... Caney Creek Falls was a beaut though.

The 8th and final waterfall of this epic 5-day road trip is one of the largest waterfalls in Tennessee, Twin Falls located at Rock Island State Park. This waterfall is fed from an underground cave system, causing it to continually flow no matter how much rain the area gets. It's quite a phenomenal place. If you look closely you can see a very tiny me in the photo below for scale.
