Tennessee Sunrise

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences and joing for the first time Jesh @ Seasons @ St Germain's Blog  Thanks to Jesh!
I hope you can join in on the fun and share your fence scenes and pretty skies.


Happy Saint Patrick's Day! 
This is my favorite Irish Blessing
May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come thru your door! 

This should be the end of our Tennessee trip and photos, we started off the 2nd full day with a sunrise at the Tennessee River and then we were off to see the waterfalls and more of the Falls Creek Falls State Park.


I am sharing my week's favorite this sunrise shot above.


For Teresa's Fridays hunt..thanks Teresa for hosting.
1. The letter L
2. Week's favorite
3.  Lace


We had a full day planned for our last full day in Tennessee, it started with a sunrise view of the Tennessee River.


My last sighting of Tennessee birds, were the Black Crowned Night Heron, Great Blue Herons, Double Crested Cormorants, a Hawk, White Pelicans and more Sandhill Cranes.


The view at the Buzzard's Roost, Falls Creek Falls State Park.


Same park but, this is a different bridge than the bridge on my last post. For Tex's Good Fences, I have this shot of the suspension bridge at Piney Creek Falls, Falls Creek Falls State Park. We crossed several bridges at this park.




I am attracted to all the dogs I see while I am away, this cute furbaby was near the waterfall. If you look closely in the top right corner I have a bit of fence for Tex's Good Fences.


This was the Piney Creek Falls.


This is the view at Falls Creek Falls, the main attraction at the park called Falls Creek Falls State Park.  I think the water on the waterfalls looks like lace for Theresa's Friday's Hunt.


George's Hole, a pretty spot in the Falls Creek Falls State Park.


My Tennesse moon capture is another photo for Teresa's hunt and my week's favorite photo.

After a full day of birding, hiking, visiting the waterfalls and park we were back at the hotel before dark and saw a beautiful moon.
As always I hope you liked my photos. Thank so much for stopping by and for the nice comments.

Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences. Also, thank you to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for doing such a great job at hosting Skywatch Friday.  Thanks also to Teresa Friday's Hunt    Thanks to Tom for hosting The Barn Collective

  I wish everyone a happy day and weekend ahead..

Wonderful park pictures, Eileen. Everything is sooo very pretty. I am envious of your Moon shot. My camera isn't good enough for moon pictures. It will sit on a tripod though, I just don't do it.
