We Visited These Tennessee State Parks Waterfalls Surrounded by Colorful Foliage -- and Loved It!

The Tennessee mountains are home to a variety of beautiful natural wonders. For us, there are none more alluring than tall waterfalls. In this 3-minute video, we'll take you along on one of our waterfall adventures. On a late October weekend in Chattanooga, we visited Tennessee's Rock Island State Park and Falls Creek Falls State Park. At Rock Creek, we watched water flow from underground caverns, cascading down the stone cliffside. Driving 45 minutes away, we discovered the spectacular canyon at Falls Creek Falls. Hiking down the rugged canyon trail, we stood at the bottom of the free-falling Falls Creek Falls as it plunges 265 feet into rock canyon. We headed back to Chattanooga, stayed overnight and then explored some of the city's parks the next day. On our route home to Georgia, we followed the summit route at Lookout Mountain and found another waterfall along the way. For more like this, visit our blog at: www.ourtravelcafe.com.

I left the business world behind, living in Northwest Georgia and writing about avocations including outdoor excursions, family-friendly travel, road trips, exploration ideas for active seniors and some of my community passions. I've traveled to 47 states and nearly as many countries, and I'm still counting up.

I'm a South Louisiana-born French Cajun whose great-grandparents were sugar farmers, bar owners and reputed bootleggers. My upbringing in food-rich Louisiana and my restaurant industry career affirmed my status as an over-qualified eater. That also inspired the name of my blog, OurTravelCafe.com. There, I offer up a complete menu of our my own experiences, explorations and adventures, organized by geography and always sprinkled with some spicy, tasty tidbits and food notes.
