    Located in the Savage Gulf State Natural Area of the South Cumberland State Park, in Tennessee, Lower Greeter Falls stands 50-feet tall and is a popular hiking destination. A variety of prints are available in my gallery at Pixels, and other fine items can also be found in my shop at Redbubble. It would make a great gift-giving idea, too!

  • Return to Upper Greeter Falls

    Return to Upper Greeter Falls

    Within the South Cumberland State Park is the Savage Gulf State Natural Area. It’s located near Altamont, Tennessee, and houses Upper Greeter Falls, a picturesque 10-foot tall waterfall.

    There are no restrooms or drinking fountain, plenty of parking and no gate. The trail is manageable and well-kept. And, of course, the waterfall is conveniently situated near its counterpart – Lower Greeter Falls. More on that another time.

    Prints & More

    You can decorate an empty wall in your home or office with a print when you visit my gallery. It would also look nice in a business lobby, cafeteria setting or hospital.

    Select from these fine print types: framed, canvas, art, metal, wood, poster, acrylic and tapestry.

  • Return to Foster Falls

    Return to Foster Falls

    Located in the South Cumberland State Park near Sequatchie, Tennessee, Foster Falls is a 60-foot tall picturesque waterfall which can be enjoyed by visitors both young and old.

    The park features a paved road, restrooms, drinking fountain and a wooden boardwalk leading to an observation deck overlooking the gorge and falls.

    From there, a short walk along a sandy path leads hikers to the forest, where one encounters a more difficult, steep downhill trail consisting of many rocks. There’s also a suspension bridge at the base, to cross the river.

    Prints & More

    You can visit my gallery to purchase a variety of items in these categories: wall art, home decor, puzzles, lifestyle, stationary, phone cases, beach, coffee mugs, face masks and apparel.

    It was overcast during my visit, yesterday. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful park and well worth a road trip to enjoy the great outdoors!

  • Drip Drip Drip

    It’s not always possible to correctly anticipate when a waterfall is either flowing fully, or nearly dry. Without live stream cameras on site, one must consider recent weather reports citing rainfall, the time of season, and other personal accounts provided online. One such source of information is alltrails.com.

    However, there are times – case in point – when photographs uploaded by park visitors were filmed at a much earlier point, absent notation. Having recently observed pictures indicative of substantial water present, I was certainly disappointed after a rather strenuous hike along a very rocky trail to discover scant water. Live and learn.

    Nevertheless, an earlier visit to Foster Falls, and subsequent hikes to Lower & Upper Greeter Falls, the Stone Door, and Laurel Falls, each contributed to a fantastic day – and very sore muscles this morning!

    This was my second visit to Denny Cove Falls, so I’ve included a video (below) from my earlier hike in March 2020 for contrast. I’ll also post more photographs from yesterday in the days ahead…

  • Savage Falls

    Savage Falls

    Morning sunlight struggles to pierce a lingering fog and mist in the air, as the powerful Savage Falls thunders through a gorge in the South Cumberland State Park of Tennessee. This 30-foot tall waterfall can be enjoyed on a manageable 3.6 mile out and back hike. If interested, you can visit my gallery to review many print types available…

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Cascades and Reflections

    These cascades are located upstream from Savage Falls, at the South Cumberland State Park in Tennessee.

    After a recent rain, an abundant flow of water generated a mist, which, when combined with a lingering morning fog, added to this scenic atmosphere.

    There’s a lot to enjoy in this black and white photograph, including the reflection of trees in foreground puddles.

    Prints are available – come by and see.
