Bald River Falls

I have spent many days working near the small East Tennessee town of Tellico. It is beautiful and the door way to the Cherokee National Forest. So on a nice fall day I took the family on a little trip.

About nine miles from Tellico up River Road we visited Bald River Falls, a striking falls that is mere yards from the road.

As usual I was in awe of God's creation

The Boy, Baby Girl, and I made our way to the falls so that the picture would have perspective. The falls were truly awesome and the pool at the bottom would be ideal for swimming.

My children enjoy the adventure as much as I do, as we scramble down the steep hill and anticipate seeing the falls that we can hear roaring.

On the drive home  thankfulness washed over me. I was blessed with a day comprised of the two most precious gifts God has given me, my family and nature. We all should be so lucky to have a faithful wife, wonderful kids, and Mountains within driving distance. Your pal the ENVIROCAPITALIST.


  1. Simply incredible. The falls were beautiful, too. I have recently shifted my life priorities and I feel a profound sense of peace around them.

  2. Beautiful photos. I love Cherokee this time of year.

  3. Simply beautiful and I fully understand how that feelin' can wash over a person while out in nature. Seems like that when I feel closest to the Lord.

  4. My dad went to church most of his life, but he was the first to admit that he felt just as close to God (or closer) under His blue sky. Beautiful photos of a beautiful area!

  5. Beautiful pictures! And just wanted to set the record straight really quickly, I am a woman. And no, I'm not from Tennessee or Texas. I was born and raised in (gasp!) Upstate New York (which, if you think about it, is just as back woods and country as any country song). I'll be following your blog! Thanks!
