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.
