We Fell For Cumberland Falls!

(7/25/09) - Shelia and I decided we'd spend the day together at another location we'd never been before...Cumberland Falls State Park just south of Somerset. Here are some pics from our fantastic day...

This is the front of duPont Lodge at Cumberland Falls State Park.  Rustic and gorgeous!

From the back patio at the duPont Lodge looking down the Cumberland River.

Another view of the front of duPont Lodge and the adjacent rooms.  A real great place to get away and just relax!

The famous Cumberland Falls - where during a sunny day, you can see a rainbow anytime - and on moonlit nights, one of the few places where you can see a moonbow!

A closeup of the falls and rainbow (or would that be a "spraybow" since it wasn't raining?)  Check out the guy fishing near the rocks and almost underneath the falls!

Shelia next to the Cumberland Falls.

Oh yeah...I love these little day trips!

Downstream (the falls are just to the left of this shot) the water is just as still as can be with massive rock formations dotting the riverside.

Me and Shelia at the Cumberland Falls overlook.

Another shot of the falls when the sun went behind the clouds.  Notice no rainbow...eh, spraybow!

There are several overlooks downstream where you can get a better, full on shot of Cumberland Falls.

What a keeper!  Shot through the trees hoping for another award winning desktop wallpaper pic!

The Cumberland Falls Visitor Center and Gift Shop full of great stuff and history!

Before we left, we stopped for a bite at the duPont Lodge and these guys wondered up next to our window.  They were hungry, too but decided to eat some bird seed that had fallen to the ground from a feeder.
