Bee Rock Recreation Area
Daniel Boone National Forest
A couple months ago when my good friend Leo Combs and I were running around Laurel County, Kentucky chasing waterfalls we headed over to Pulaski County to photograph Bear Creek Falls. Unfortunately the lake levels were up and the falls was only 3 ft tall. When lake levels are down it's about 20 ft tall. So we made a change of plan and headed up to Bee Rock. Though I had been to the Bee Rock Campground I had never been up to the overlook. We decided to drive in from above and make the one mile hike. Goodness, were we glad we did! Though the clouds had dissipated dramatically from the time it took to drive and hike there, we still enjoyed a lovely sunset and a beautiful view looking down the Rockcastle River!
