Sunday Hike: Fall Creek Falls

Our Sunday afternoon was spent hiking at Fall Creek Falls. The massive state park has numerous huge waterfalls, including the highest free-falling or "plunge" waterfall in the eastern U.S. My husband's family settled this area of the Cumberland Plateau hundreds of years ago, and his great-uncle was the first superintendent of the park, in the 1940's.



Although I've been to this park numerous times, I never noticed this huge heart-shaped stone set in a walkway. How fortuitous that I glimpsed it for the first time on Valentine's Day!
