I'm promising myself that next trip I'll take notes about the hikes and what pictures I took where. This trip, I just have pictures of lovely but unknown waterfalls.

On Thursday we took short hikes between the rain to falls that were close to the trailheads. I can't decide whether the falls were more lively because of the rains - logic would say so but they always seem to be roaring.

If I'm remembering right, the one below is in the Bryson City area.

And then, of course, there's Abrams Falls, in the Cades Cove area. I'd guess that this is the most readily recognized falls in the park. It's a longer hike and we did this one on Friday.

I'm missing them all.

My one Elkmont camping wish, shared by everyone I'm sure, is that Elkmont had showers. We've got a short list of places where shower time can be purchased, but it would be so nice to be able to shower at the campground. I know it's not going to happen, just wishing.

The top one is Mingus Falls. It's just outside the park, close to Cherokee.
the second one is, I think, Juney Wank Falls.
The third one shoudl be Toms Branch Falls then Indian Creek Falls. Of course, you are right about Abrams.
