The Second Day of Spring

Pictures from Whites Creek in Roane County from our hike today... 

This is the pool below the confluence of Piney Creek and Fall Creek. We are standing in Roane County looking at Rhea County and are just a few hundred feet from the Cumberland County line. I'm curious about how the boundaries were drawn back when. I think these were land grant properties and frankly there's no way to get to these bits of Rhea County without going through Cumberland. 

Ford Branch

Trout Lily (I think)

Wake Robin Trillium


  1. Thanks--your pictures are almost as good as a walk in the woods--which I couldn't get today.

  2. Thank you for the mini-vacation!
