Coker Creek falls is just over the line In Polk county Tennessee.
There’s a sign with an arrow scratched on it indicating the turn onto forest rd 2138
The road dead ends at a little parking lot.
The trail follows the river.
The trail was nice, it looked like some fabulous volunteers had recently done some work on the trails.
There are a number of falls along the trail.
The next falls was very nice.
The afternoon light was perfect.
There was another falls, I set up the tripod and camera.
I saw that rock out there all dry and was sure the light and the angle was better out there…
Next thing I know I’m shin deep in cold water and I’m sitting on a cold rock with a trickle of water flowing over it.
Nevermind me, yeah, I’m fine, no I don’t think I hit my knee or anything else for that matter –How’s my camera?
After looking it over, the camera’s fine and my beater lens is fine. I just seem to have wrecked a UV filter and ripped a ligament on one of the legs of the tripod. It’ll probably need a brace from now on.
Considering all the possibilities I’m pretty happy to have only lost a UV filter.
All the way back I was reminded that Gore-tex shoes hold water real well.
That’s all for now, I gotta find some dry clothes.
