  • Sixty Feet of Thunder

    Sixty Feet of Thunder

  • Water Through Rocks

    Water Through Rocks

    This is Eagle Falls. Like other waterfalls, it erodes solid rock behind, under and ahead of its flow. You can often walk behind falls, wade or swim in deep plunge pools below falls, or crudely anticipate direction of future flows. And, of course, you may simply sit to rest and enjoy the beauty of waterfalls – in person, or at home. Visit my galleries at Pixels and Redbubble to discover some wonderful prints for your home, office, or anywhere, as well as many other product options!

    In addition to being the only location in the Western Hemisphere featuring a “Moonbow”, Cumberland Falls (also known as, The Niagara of the South) stands 60-feet tall by 125-feet wide.

    A popular tourist destination located in Corbin, Kentucky, the waterfall can be viewed from several observation areas at the park, as well as from the Eagle Falls Trail – across the Cumberland River.

    These are some photographs from my recent visit. Many different types of prints are available in my gallery, including: framed, canvas, art, metal, poster, wood, acrylic and tapestry. So, stop by today and find something nice for a wall in your home or office!


  • Return to Eagle Falls

    Located along the Cumberland River in Corbin, Kentucky, the scenic Eagle Falls stands 30-feet tall. The trail is relatively short – rated as moderate with several changes in elevation and some rocky areas – and certainly well worth the effort!

    Parking is limited so it’s best to visit during the weekdays, if possible, or arrive early on the weekend. There are no restrooms on site, though such is available immediately across the river at the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park – home of the impressive Cumberland Falls, also known as “The Niagara of the South”.

    Prints are available in my gallery – framed, canvas, metal, art, poster, wood, acrylic and tapestry. Plus, more…

    Here is Eagle Falls. Fed from Brummett Branch, water drains into the Cumberland River through several large boulders. Along the hike you’ll also encounter what are probably the best views of Cumberland Falls – see video below.

    Here are a few shots from the trail. The third shot was photographed from across the Cumberland River, in which, if you look closely, you’ll see the wooden railing along the hiking trail to Eagle Falls.


    Note: if you have a fear of heights, then you may not want to watch this video. At the end, it reveals Cumberland Falls – more on that later.

    Prints make a great gift-giving idea and may be enjoyed all year long on a wall in your home, office, business lobby, hospital or cafeteria setting. Enjoy the great outdoors & thanks for visiting!
