Lower Falls
Big Bloody Creek
Wolfe County
Kentucky

Another photo of a privately owned waterfall in Wolfe County, Kentucky! I was really glad that access was allowed to this beauty as I spent quite a while here enjoying taking in this waterfall. The fun part about here, was getting out. A thin layer of soft wet dirt covering a massive rock made for a challenge. My whole upper body was sore after the scramble and pulling myself out of the creek. I love aging. It was all worth it though!

Un-Named Falls
Privately Owned
Wolfe County
Kentucky

Kentucky's loaded with waterfalls, the problem is, so many of them are privately owned. Myself and good friend Jason Haley visited this one in Wolfe County a few weeks back, what a beauty! The last time I visited here is was cold and snowy and it was nice to return in completely different conditions!

McCammon Falls
Tributary Of McCammon Branch
Jackson County
Grey Hawk
Kentucky

With a perfectly forecasted day of clouds and cool weather on Saturday I couldn't resist getting out and doing some waterfalling. I'd been wanting to revisit McCammon Falls in Jackson County, Kentucky in good conditions for some time. It had been 4 years since I had spent some quality time with this waterfall, which also happened to be my first visit. Although I had been here two more times after that both those visits were of the extreme, once with no water and the other there was way too much water. On this latest visit I couldn't have asked for better flow. See that tree on the left? I hate that tree. In the case of this shot I thought it fit the composition well, but to get straight on shots of the falls showing both tiers is quite the challenge since the dead limbs protrude across the view of the waterfall. I've been threatening to bring an extendable saw and trimming the limbs off for some time now but on this latest trip I wasn't in the mood to fight a 6 ft tall pole with a sharp blade on the end in the vehicle all day long. Some day though, I'm going to clean that view up.

Flat Lick Falls
Flat Lick Creek
Jackson County Park
Gray Hawk
Kentucky

I was going through some photos from last year when myself and my good friends The Static Brothers took a trip to the Cumberland Falls area and came across this shot of Flat Lick Falls! It was great to finally spend some time at this elusive (for me) waterfall and to share it with some great folks! Truly one of the gems of the state!

Pretty House Arch
Daniel Boone National Forest
Jackson County, Kentucky

Many of you probably don't know it but I have a serious fear of heights and falling. Though she meant well, my Mom instilled these fears in me when I was a child. She wouldn't allow me to climb the ladder to help Dad on the roof of the house or if we were off in some state or national park I wasn't allowed to climb or jump on the rocks or anything else of that nature. She was worried I would get hurt or even die, as I was her only child. Years later my passion for visiting things in nature, and this primal fear have been at constant odds. 10 years ago I had trouble walking out on Sky Bridge, but over the years I've pushed myself to face this fear and push beyond it. Today I go places I could have never imagined I could go, the fear is still there but I work with it and through it, most of the time. Which brings us to tonight's post. This past weekend my good friend Jason Haley and I made the relatively short hike to Pretty House Arch in the London District of the Daniel Boone National Forest in Jackson County, Kentucky. We followed an unmarked mostly uphill trail to a massive rock outcropping on a ridge top. We made our way around the base where eventually we came to where we could see the arch, high above in the cliff line. "You've got to be kidding me." I thought to myself. "And it is a beauty too." Scanning my options I saw there was the possibility I could scramble up a section of sandstone in the face of the cliff, but from where I was standing I didn't like it at all. Off in the distance I saw that the towering rock eventually met the flat top of the ridge. "Perhaps I can come in from there", I thought. I continued along the base of the cliff line to see if it was an option and as I made my way atop the rock complex I was able to move closer and closer to the arch, where eventually I found myself above it. With sheer 40 ft. drops on each side I started to panic and I was realizing that I wasn't going to be able find a way down or around, but Jason who had made his way from below called out to me and said there was a way down to the arch from where I was. It certainly didn't look like it from where I was standing. The area I had to walk across was only about 5 feet wide before I could even give it a look. I thought to myself, "I didn't do all this work for nothing." So I walked towards the arch to have a look and I saw that the scramble down was a very comfortable decent outside the fact that off the to right was straight down and I had about a 3 foot width to work with. Again I was hesitant, but I told myself I wasn't going to miss this arch, "there's no turning back." Swallowing my fear, I made my way down and hopped to it's base. Boy, was I glad I did, what a beauty! It was so worth it! Due to the tight spaces compositions were limited, but this perspective here was my favorite! And that ascent I was concerned about? Well, it wasn't so bad to go down at all!
