Rock Pigeon

While in the Crossville, TN area recently, I had the pleasure of taking a brief visit to the gorgeous Falls Creek Falls State Park, which is about 40 miles from Crossville.  We only stayed about an hour and only did a little hiking but I managed to take a few pictures of the scenery while I was there.

The two waterfalls were full of water as is usual during the Spring months.  I saw a hawk of some kind, and surprisingly, several Rock Pigeons high on the side of the bluffs (they sure lived up to their name!).   This large Tennessee State Park has a campground, a hotel, and many recreational facilities.  I really enjoyed this brief visit.  I had been there several other times in past years.   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. how beautiful! the falls are lovely!

    • Hi Theresa, I really had a great time visiting this gorgeous TN State Park. Yes, the falls were running with plenty of water – refreshing even to look at on a warm day. Have a super good day today and an excellent day tomorrow, too!

  2. The falls are very nice. I can see how they named the park.

    • Hi Montucky, It is a nice park with something for everyone. Hiking, camping, nature program and small museum, sight-seeing, birding, swimming in the pool in Summer, and I believe there is a playground. There also is a reservoir but I don’t know if fishing or boating is allowed. Have a great day tomorrow!
