our finest moments

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways of truer answers.
--M. Scott Peck (1936-2005) American psychiatrist and author 

Above: The path at Rocky Forky in Unicoi County, TN.  Click here a map of this spectacular area, recently protected from development. Click here for an excellent description of the hike to Buzzard Rock.

Directions: Take the Flag Pond exit off of I-26 (exit #50), at the stop sign turn left onto Higgins Creek Road. Drive ½ mile, til you reach Rt. 23, turn right and travel 2 ¼ mi. through Flag Pond, then turn left on Rocky Fork Road. Take your time driving up this road, the creek offers amazing cascades and waterfalls. After ¾ mi. you will see a gravel pull-off to the left with space for about three cars. Park here (out of the way of the gate) and follow the gravel lane into Rocky Fork on foot. A trio of falls is about a quarter mile in on your left.
