|Dark Hollow Falls|
I first discovered the park on my drives to Memphis while by daughter was a student. As someone who has fished mountain brooks in the Adirondacks and New England, I really had no idea what to expect in Southern Appalachia but I was struct by the ruggedness of the gorges and hollows in the park. The streams are high-gradient mountain streams very similar in character to the types of streams I love fishing in the northeast.
I fell in love with the park on that very first visit and have had the opportunity to camp and fish there a few times. I hope these pictures will encourage you to explore this national treasure. You will notice that almost all of the shots are rotated vertical to fully capture the waterfalls
