The federal government shutdown and the latest Jefferson Bass novella gave me an idea for a place to visit with my wife. She wanted to get out and do something in the beautiful weather but the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is off-limits. I suggested that we go to Frozen Head State Park, which is the site of a crime scene in Jordan’s Stormy Banks.
We found a hiking stick that made the experience more enjoyable for me as we walked to Debord Falls. We also stopped to talk with a fisherman who was trying to catch a solitary rainbow trout in a pool of Flat Fork Creek.
