Cumberland Falls

Saturday, April 7, 2012

We left West Virginia today heading for Kentucky.  We could have gone straight east to Louisville where my sister, Dee, and her husband, Roger, live.  My brother Bob, and his wife Ione also live near and we intended to have a visit before continuing the journey.  But we were not due to be there until Sunday or Monday, so we decided to see one sight in Kentucky.  I have always heard of a place called Cumberland Falls in south Kentucky.  So that is where we headed.  We crossed into Kentucky at Ashland and then turned south.  By the time we got near the falls it was about to get dark so we found a Walmart in Corbin, KY which welcomed us to spend the night.  Of course we also took this opportunity to show our gratitude by purchasing needed supplies.

Up this morning and off to see Cumberland Falls.  We drove about 20 miles east across a little mountain to a very nice falls.  This was a beautiful place. I think I will allow the photos to speak for themselves.  As we were planning this trip to the falls, we almost decided not to go.  We looked a photos of the place and it did not seem all that great.  I am very glad we decided to go.  These photos are the best we could do but they do not tell the story of the beauty and power of this place like a personal visit.  If you are in this part of the world and have the chance to visit.  i highly recommend it.
