Inspired by Mark Peacock's fantastic blog, I ventured to Sill Branch Falls in Unicoi Co. this afternoon.

New Victory area in Washington County:





I was very impressed with Sill Branch Falls, which is considerably higher than I expected. Some sources say it's only 20-30' high but it's actually at least a 50-footer:









Poor-quality video:


After seeing this pic of the waterfall at high flow, I'm going to be sure to return after a heavy rain!

Geez, kamoshika, they just keep getting better and better. And yep, Embreeville is one of the most scenic areas of Washington County...

I have to agree with Jabogitlu when he says they keep getting better and better.

The Falls looks so nice!

BEAUTIFUL PIX ! !

Is there a Newcomers group ,or Welcome Wagon in the tri-cities? or in each individual town ? Just thinking of when we get there, it would be great to have a few people to meet to point us in the right direction of some "not to miss sights ."

Hey CLO! I can't answer regarding Welcome Wagons and such. You may want to check out NETTA: Visit Appalachian Mountains – Northeast Tennessee. It's a site I only recently discovered and have found it to be one of the most comprehensive sites for "our neck of the woods". Hopefully it will be of assistance to you.

I took this photo out my bedroom window as the storm clouds were rolling in this evening. It was really pretty, but my dirty window sort of diminishes the effect... sorry, lol. But, anyway, it's pretty illustrative of some of the rampant condo building that had been going on here, approx. 2006-mid 2008. And actually, right now they're adding eight condos onto the right end of all these.

*g*

Suecen, I'm actually not sure. I'm thinking probably in the lower 100's but... next time I'm around on that side I'll try to get the # from the sign and give them a ring.
