Behind the Falls

Big Laurel Falls stands 40-feet tall. However, as with many waterfalls situated on the Cumberland Plateau, the volume of water present diminishes during generally drier, summer months.

That said, at times such as these it’s much easier to enjoy exploring the cave behind the falls, which has dimensions of approximately 160-feet wide by 80-feet deep. Located on top of a large network of caverns, the water from this creek and falls drains back inside the cave and vanishes underground.

To see more, you can either hike the Virgin Fall State Natural Area, or visit my galleries to discover great prints & other items available, here: Pixels, Redbubble.

Thanks for stopping by!
