Fall Creek Falls State Park – Tennessee

9/15/2010:

Fall Creek Falls State Resort Park is a state park in Middle Tennessee, located between Pikeville and Spencer. The 20,000-acre (81 km2) park spans the boundary between Van Buren and Bledsoe counties. The park is centered on the upper Cane Creek Gorge, an area known for its unique geological formations and scenic waterfalls.  The park’s namesake is the 256-foot (78 m) Fall Creek Falls, the highest plunge waterfall east of the Mississippi River.  The Cane Creek Gorge presents as a large gash in the western edge of the Cumberland Plateau, stretching for some 15 miles (24 km) from the Cane Creek Cascades to Cane Creek’s mouth along the Caney Fork River. Cane Creek rises atop Little Mountain— which lines the plateau’s eastern edge above Sequatchie Valley— and winds northward across the plateau.  from Wikipedia.
