Where in the World is Smokey?

Visiting DeSoto Falls

Paula Harris Morrison graduated from UT Knoxville in 1980 with a bachelor's degree in mathematics. She and her husband have been back in Knoxville for 2.5 years after spending 20-plus years in the Atlanta area. Morrison how works assistant to the cornea specialist at University Eye Surgeons.

"In this picture, Smokey is posing on the deck of my cousin's cabin with a backdrop of DeSoto Falls, the scenic highlight of DeSoto Falls State Park near Mentone, in the northeast corner of Alabama. Named for the Spanish explorer -- who, according to legend, 'discovered' it during his explorations in the New World -- the 104-foot falls are really a series of three waterfalls. The falls are part of the West Fork of the Little River, which plummets into its own canyon -- carved over the centuries through sheer erosive power.

"My cousin shares his cabin with his family and friends; my husband and I enjoy an occasional quiet -- except for the water music provided by the falls -- weekend there."
