Exploring Tennessee's Wilderness

You don't have to travel far to explore Tennessee's wild side.  Thankfully, we still have areas like Cherokee National Forest where tree canopies and cool waters lure hikers and anglers.  Recently WildSouth's Jeff Hunter took a group of new media folks out to an area conservationists want to preserve with the Tennessee Wilderness Act.  We started at the photo spot the tourists all frequent at Bald River Falls.  Then we headed upstream to do some woods and water hiking through the wilderness.
