The Smoky Mountains NP has over 2,900 miles of clear mountain streams, which are fed from over 85″ of annual rainfall in the higher elevations. The steep mountain sides create roaring streams with hundreds of water falls. Books are written about the top 50 falls, most scenic, tallest, etc.
Roaring Forks Falls is pictured at left. Not very tall, but the steep slope and winding path makes it sound larger than it is. Small but mighty.
Thought for the Day: And though she be but little, she is fierce.
