Midnight Hole, a deep, picturesque pool below a 6' tall waterfall is part of Big Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The crystal clear waters make this waterfall a popular swimming hole, as well as a great place to have fun with the family. Today the water was a little chilly, but not ice cold as I wade mid-thigh for the shot. Shooting waterfalls can sometimes get you a little wet.
You can locate these falls I-40 and exit off Waterville Road (#451). Turn left after crossing the Pigeon River and proceed 2.3 miles to an intersection. Continue straight, past the ranger station, to a large parking area at road's end. Just remember to get there early as this is a popular place to hike, picnic, and play in the creek during warmer weather.
