A few more photos to share of the Cumberland Falls trip while I catch up with things around here.
I think I enjoyed the water reflections as much as the falls.
Taking a 2 hour hike on the other side of Cumberland Falls, you get another viewpoint...and can walk down to Eagle Falls if you have the stamina and don't mind climbing over very large boulders just before reaching the smaller, but very pretty, falls.
Take my advice and, unless you just want the extra exercise, do not take the steps straight up (136 of them) to the gorge overlook. Nothing to see - maybe in the winter but not this time of year. And those steps didn't get any easier...and made me feel quite old when a young woman came by and began running up them!!
This sycamore's roots had been washed by the water and it had cut away the beach (nice, brown-orange sand), causing it to look like it was getting ready to get up and walk away.
It had some interesting patterns in it's trunk and roots...very unreal in color and pattern.
Hope you enjoyed the photos. I'll get back to posting artwork - or talking about art - soon.
