The Tree-Root Waterfall


The Tree-Root Cascade, originally uploaded by ParsecTraveller.

Here's a pretty unique waterfall.

This cascade is formed by the roots of a bigleaf maple growing through the creek bed. The water flows over the roots in a curtain and plunges into a somewhat deep pool.

This waterfall, like many others in the area, only flows during the rainy season. It's completely bone dry right now.

Very Very interesting. Mr Chiots and I love hiking in the Smokies because they have many waterfalls. They're always a great reward at the end of the trail.

Maybe it's just me but the way you captured the actual fall of the water is amazing.
