I'm jumping ahead in my Smokies posts because a couple of people are waiting to see these photos.
Beneath a bridge on the road to Cades Cove is a small cascades known as The Sinks. Waterfalls of the Smokies describes it as, "The Little River sinks suddenly and dramatically over tilted formations of Thunderhead sandstone." The author is referring to this view:
While we were visiting The Sinks, a couple of kayakers prepared to take on the white water. We had to see that! And of course, I had to take photos.
Unexpected fun on our last day in the Smoky Mountains. Thanks, guys!
