     Nearly centered in America's eastern half of the country, Tennessee stretches across the map for more than 500 miles, from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Mississippi River. Although music is closest to the state's heart, and so well known for its bluegrass throughout the Eastern Hills, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and the Memphis Blues along the Mississippi, the state is also big on dramatic scenery. Its majestic mountains, winding rivers and over 650 waterfalls are waiting to be discovered.
     For waterfall fans, Tennessee invites all to experience the highest falls east of the Rockies. Fall Creek Falls and Buckeye Falls are two of the highest and most beautiful waterfalls in the state. Pictured above is another one of the state's beauties, Carmac Falls. This 90 foot cascade is the 10th highest waterfall in the state and is located just a short distance from the main lodge at the Evins Mill Resort. Located near the town of Smithville and Interstate 40, Evins Mill offers a lodge, fine dining and spectacular views. Only a quarter mile walk from the Evins Mill Pond Dam, Carmac Falls creates a cozy setting for this wonderful retreat. This is a private lodge setting and owners ask that you to seek permission to take in the falls area.
