Out long weekend road trip has begun! We packed up the Subaru and headed west for once. For the two-plus years we've been in Tennessee we have not done any exploring in the Volunteer State west of Knoxville. Today we changed that. Our first stop, on our way to Cumberland Mountain State Park, was Ozone Falls State Natural Area. We parked near a railroad trestle across the street from the natural area and then hit the trail. Our first stop was the brink of the falls.
All said, the waterfall was very impressive, but given its close proximity to the road and Interstate-40, the area sees a lot of use. Some of that use is in the form of partying and basically trashing the area. It's a shame because the falls would be much more enjoyable if there were not as much trash. Still, it's worth a visit, if you happen to be in the area.
