The Sinks



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

The Sinks in the Smokies is where Little River drops 10 feet over sandstone bedrock. There is a large, natural pool below the cascades which is a popular summer swimming hole.

Hi George,
Sorry I have not been by, I have bin under the weather for a while now,
I saw below you have been to the Great Wall , that is awesome. I saw it on a tv show. I was amazed at all the areas that people lived while it was in use.

George has left a new comment on your post "Ontario Winter Games":
Canadians obviously are very serious about their winter games.

Ah yes, George. When the Universe sends snow, we go out and play! A whole new world out there each day!

Very pretty. I wonder if the sandstone is wearing so that the drop is getting shallower every year.

What a beautiful place. It's no wonder why it's popular during summertime.
