KY-Cumberland Falls

a quick wrap up of the past couple days my sis and I went our separate ways she is home fine and the dogs and Mom are happy to have her back...I snapped these shots at Fall Creek Falls during my last bit of time there...

Then it was time to head north and for me it was Kentucky.  KY is a beautiful state of rolling farm land and green pastures and more rugged areas in the Cumberland Mountain areas...the likes of Daniel Boone and other frontiersmen helped to settle this region.  Funny how much of our waterways the Dupont family has owned and then donated to the state I know there is still chemical clean up they have to do in the Dupont Forest in NC..

this is located in the Daniel Boone NF



I stayed in the CG its small but Okay has laundry, showers, electric and water at the sites...it was hot so I used both my fans!  We didn't visit this lodge or restaurant  we were here to see the falls!



and other life happening by this river...


and the beautiful landscape it has created...

the falls is a horseshoe falls 68 ft high and has a spry that gives it the nick name the Niagara of the South!


There is also a moonbeam on the full moon and the area is open till midnight I would enjoy seeing that but no full moon the night I was there...



When the wind catches this spray you think its raining!! 

and not just moonbeams look at this awesome rainbow!!


I spent 2 days in KY more on that in my next post.
