Tennessee Warnings and Dangers: 12 reviews and 6 photos
The natural beauty of Tennessee is reknown, but do not become so lulled by the beauty that you forget about your own safety.
The photo of me on the rocks in the stream at Cumberland Mountain State Park looks quite tranquil; it was quite tranquil on the day that we were there in October. However, in the spring, the amount of rainfall is substantial, and the creeks often flood and run rapidly. Do not walk on the rocks at that time!
Anytime there are rock formations, as in this park, you must be aware of the dangers of slipping. Wear good hiking shoes, and stay alert.
In the summer, there are plenty of mosquitoes, so be sure to protect yourself with a mosquito spray with Deet.
Even though there are large hardwood trees in the forests, still wear a hat in the summer months to protect yourself from damaging UV rays.
Anytime in the woods, be aware of tics who attach themselves to your scalp and/or skin. After being in the woods, have someone inspect your hair and scalp.
Don't become paranoid, but do be careful.
