**Still catching up…after falling back behind before even being caught up. How sad.
Sunday, October 10
Last fall I had seen pictures of a fellow photographer (who is friends with my brother and who I have played soccer with for two indoor seasons) at Dog Slaughter Falls. I immediately fell in love with the place and since then have been trying to get there. Dog Slaughter Falls is in Cumberland Falls State Park. Cumberland Falls is another waterfall there, ad is one of two waterfalls in the world where a moonbow is visible. Elliot has always wanted to see that (which is obviously only visible at night, and only during full moons for that matter), so we decided we needed to swing by that one also. Well this past weekend Elliot and I finally had a Sunday free, and so I told him early on in the week that we were going to go no matter what and that he was not to make plans. Sunday morning we headed out, and opted for the back roads instead of taking the highway. It took is a little over two hours, and was such a nice drive. We stopped and got some lunch and water before actually going into the park, and then began our long day of hiking.
This is Cumberland falls (the one that has the moonbow). It is right next to the visitor center, and so up at the top of it there were a ton of people. Once we hiked down a bit there were less and less people, which was nice. This particular spot we had to climb over some huge boulders and jammed logs, and were completely alone there.
I will upload the “rest” of the pictures in another post with some more of the story perhaps. It was extremely difficult to choose just one main picture from this day, I am so happy with so many, which is the first time in a long time that I have actually liked my landscape photographs.
