In the heart of the gorge

Here is another shot of the Doe River in Carter County taken from Pardee Point along the old Tweetsie Railroad. This is a point deep within Doe River Gorge where the tracks make a sweeping curve with the river roaring far below and sheer rock cliffs soaring high above. It's at this point that passenger trains would often stop to let people get out and enjoy the views. Click here for a interesting website that has many more photos and information about the Tweetsie and Doe River Gorge.
