This is a creek in my back yard. The water in front of the waterfall closest to you is about 2 feet deep. I drove down the waterfall and found out how deep it was! This was before I had installed the tires and rims so comming out I bottomed out and had to use the winch on the large downed tree you see to the left of the photo!! This is one of my favorite spots in my parents back yard in good ol' Tennessee!

That is nice! Actually very scenic as well. THis is what I can't wait for with my quad come the spring. Thats what I missed while 4wheelin with my full size vehicle...the ground you could cover and the scenery you get to see.

Yeah, I once tried taking an XR250 dirtbike down that waterfall...I found that narrow dirtbike tires dont grip well in that fungus stuff on the bottom of the creek on the rocks LOL....and walking isn't much eaiser!

Places like that are why I bought my Grizzly. Looks like an awsome place to grow up man.

Thanks for the compliments on our place. I love the shade here in the hot summer months, but I sure hate like **** when early November gets here! I get mountains of leaves when I am done raking.LOL Here is another pic of the house, it was built in 1900 and notice the tree stump there close to the house. I cut that tree down last year because it was standing directly over the house and a very bad hazard. The tree was quite a large Swamp Maple, and it was as old as the house is. There are two monsterous trees by the road on my property one is an Ash the other a Maple, they are estimated to be over 250 years old. Talk about "tree dandruff" when they shed! LMAO

Hi Blue,

Don't know if I missed something but I can't see the pics of your place. But it sure sounds like a special place with all that history.

Cheers Noel

I have some childhood spots myself. Memories of grand-dad and I hunting and trolling will allways be close. Thanks for making me think about em again.. My son will get an ear full when he gets old enough.

Thanks again and pictures are worth "more" than a thousand words.

If there is one place I think I'd like as much as PA, it's Tennessee. Beautiful pics. Is your area getting built up with new houses/ businesses and such? My area is, and riding does suffer because of it, for sure!
