A paradise of more than 20,000 acres sprawled across the eastern top of the rugged Cumberland Plateau, Fall Creek Falls State Park is one of the most scenic and spectacular outdoor recreation areas in America. Laced with cascades, gorges, waterfalls, streams, and lush stands of virgin hardwood timber, the park beckons those who enjoy nature at her finest. While Fall Creek Falls, at 256 feet, is the highest waterfall in the eastern United States, other waterfalls in the park are Piney and Cane Creek Falls and Cane Creek Cascades.

I captured this single long exposure shot while I was on a state park adventure on 06/19/2015. Me and my fiance had been hiking most of the day, so we decided to take a break in this spot. I sat and enjoyed the view, reminiscing about life and my future. I noticed that there was some foam floating around in the water. At that point, it was almost sunset, so I set up my camera and tripod and captured some long exposures of this scene, knowing the effect it would give. One thing that I didnt notice at first was the face in the water. In fact, the face is sort of reminiscent of E.T. off of one of my favorite classics. When things like this happen, it brings me peace of mind that photography is my destiny.

Great Park Ranger - My husband and I are from Chicago and were visiting a family friend on Sept. 11. She suggested hiking in your park because of the great trails and waterfalls. Our friend was recovering from back surgery so she had to hike at a slower pace snd use her cane. Just prior to reaching the last waterfall we encountered one of the nicest Park Rangers. Nat was his name and he assured us we were headed in the right direction and suggested we use the emergency vehicle road to pick up our friend so she would not have to walk back to the parking lot. He was very knowledgble about the park and so helpful. What a great anbassador he is for the park.

needs a lake i like to fish - we live in Gallatin we try to camp here at least once a year.Peaceful relaxing we love it
Facilities - Where did the trash cans go? The only trash cans are in the picnic area, which is free; the paying campers are expected to deliver trash to the dumpsters. When and why did this change?
