Burgess Falls

Fall break is coming to an end and soon everyone will be back in school and getting back to normal (whatever that is). Today was the day to spend away from the shop so my wife, Kim, decided we should take a hike up to Burgess Falls. I had not been there in 20 years and I new Logan would love everything about it. We packed a picnic lunch and drove up to Cookeville and followed the signs to Burgess Falls State Park. It is only 8 miles off I-40 and well worth the drive. I took the tripod along and tried my hand at waterfall photography.

 I wish I could build my shop next to this fall. It is a thing of beauty and the sounds are incredible.
 Logan shows the scale of this thing. There are 3 main waterfalls down this trail and this is the big one at the end.
 Logan collected a rock to add to our collection from around the country. We had a blast today and my stress level has washed away with the falls. We may have to come back when the leaves change in a few weeks. I guess it is good that the government didn't shut down state parks.
