Cumberland Falls

Cumberland falls

as seen from the lowest observation spot at the park. The waterfall is 60 feet tall and 125 feet wide. For all of my fellow Nashvillians who'd never heard of this place, It's the Cumberland River upstream near Corbin, Ky (sorta halfway between Knoxville and Lexington). Some people call it "Niagra Falls of the South."

This picture was taken close to dusk, as we had hoped to see the famed moonbow at the right moment, but it was too cloudy that night. When the moon is full, if you're standing at the right place you see something that looks like a rainbow, but it's illuminated by the light of the moon and not the sun. You can't see that too many places.
