Fly the Big South Fork River Gorge
Recently television station WBIR out of Knoxville, Tennessee produced a 30 minute video on the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. As a part of the video Famfive Productions flew through a section of the Big South Fork River gorge from the O&W bridge south along the river for a distance of 2 to 3 miles to the mouth of Pine Creek.
Come fly the gorge and look up at the rim.
In early May, 2009 the Cumberland Plateau received several inches of rain in a very short time period. In addition to raising the Big South Forkflow rate to over 45,000 cfs, the rains also turned the normally quiet Yahoo Falls in to a raging torrent. The following link will show you another, rarely seen, summer side to Yahoo Falls and the colder winter side to Yahoo Falls.

The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area protects only 14% of its watershed. Unfortunately it is the lower end of the watershed, so that everything which happens outside the park, impacts the parks water quality.
