Small Creeks and Waterfalls

Art Prints

Some of the most peaceful and relaxing places on the planet are small creeks and waterfalls. Most are  not crowded so you can literally have the place for yourself. They are secluded and out of the way, as a result, many times wildlife can be observed in their natural habitat without them seeing you.

This small waterfall is located on a creek named Harvey’s Branch near the tiny village of Oldenburg in southeastern Indiana. Harvey’s Branch, obviously named after someone named Harvey, who lives nearby, follows Harveys Branch Road beginning on the northern edge of Oldenburg and ends in Peppertown, a few miles north. It is a narrow gravel road, but very picturesque, especially in the autumn when the leaves display their fall colors.

The Flume, located in New Hampshire, is a beautiful place to enjoy a few moments while taking a break while touring the lovely scenery of New England.

The Flume was discovered in 1808 by 93-year-old  “Aunt” Jess Guernsey when she accidently came upon it while fishing. She had trouble convincing her family of the marvelous discovery, but eventually persuaded others to come and see for themselves. At that time, a huge egg-shaped boulder hung suspended between the walls. The rock was 10 feet (3m) high and 12 feet (3.6m) long. A heavy rainstorm in June of 1883 started a landslide that swept the boulder from its place. It has never been found. The same storm deepened the gorge and formed Avalanche Falls.

 

Ruby Falls, located near Chattanooga Tennesee is equally inviting. It is located near many historical Civil War sites in the southern Tennessee, northern Georgia area.
