The weather earlier in the week was sunny and 80°F so I felt is was going to be a nice weekend. Boy was I wrong. By Friday night it was in the 50's and rainy. I told myself I would go no matter what. Sure enough, it was continuing to rain and in the 40's this morning but I drove down River Road to Baby Falls.
With all of the rain, the water level was high and the falls were incredible. The roar of the water pouring over the rocks was defining. There was no way I was going to be able to wade into the river to get close due to the powerful current.
One thing I can say about the Tellico River along River Road, the rocks are massive. Most of them are slick and the rain just made them even harder to move on. Boy they sure do add to the scenery though. Take a look at the one just to left of the falls in the picture above. Most aren't that big, but they are the size of small trucks.

The rocks still make the photo for me. Each one is unique with it's markings, shapes and colors and the water breaks over each one a little differently. I've said it before, I think I could stop every 100 yards along River Road and achieve a unique photo experience with every stop. That's why I keep coming back even when its raining.
