I’ve been meaning to write about this trip I took on New Years Day for awhile now. Nearly three months into the year isn’t too late, is it?
Anyway, I got 2019 started off right by going to check out two spots in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge that looked curious on LiDAR. In fact, they looked an awful lot like waterfalls!
The result was two newly documented waterfalls. It doesn’t appear that anyone has been to them in quite some time, so it’s likely that we are the first people to photograph them (at least with a digital camera)!Read More
If you haven’t noticed yet, I have a minor obsession with visiting and photographing waterfalls. To be honest, it could probably be classified as a sickness at this point! As such, I recently went to scout out some of the off-trail waterfalls in Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave National Park.
What follows is an overview of that trip and a log of my experiences.Read More
Kentucky is just packed full of natural arches. In fact, it’s ranked either second or third in the United States for most number of natural arches. We are behind only Utah and possibly Arizona. East of the Mississippi, however, we are ranked number one!
That means that there are hundreds (if not thousands) of natural arches to be seen in the state! Many of these are off designated trails and seldom visited. It’s up to the intrepid explorer to put in the time, energy and research to find these hidden treasures. In this spirit of exploration, I’m not going to spoil the locations of these arches here. I’ll leave that up to you 😉
So, without further ado, here are my five favorite natural arches in Kentucky that I’ve found so far!Read More
If you look at my Instagram feed, Facebook Page or anywhere else that I tend to post my photos, you’ll know that here lately I’ve had a small obsession with waterfalls. There’s just something about a cascade of water that is awe-inspiring and that leaves me no choice but to photograph it. Oh, and my home state of Kentucky just so happens to be full of wonderful waterfalls! I figured I’d take some time to show off some of my more recent waterfall shots, and maybe tell some of the stories behind them.Read More
This past Friday I drove down to Laurel County, Kentucky, to explore part of the Daniel Boone National Forest with my buddy @MCochis. The primary goal of this trip was to check out a spot that Mike had identified as being a possible waterfall. Spoiler alert, we did indeed find the waterfall. I’ll have images of said waterfall to share later.
Before venturing off to find this possible waterfall we hit up a few arches. Amongst these were the Daylight Arches. This set of twin arches are quite a sight to behold!
When I saw just how close these arches were to the Forest Service road, I expected them to be absolutely trashed. That is, after all, just the sad reality of this stuff being easy to get to. To my delight, however, they were in pretty good shape. The trash and graffiti, while present, was not nearly as bad as I had expected.
Many of the other arches I’ve been to that are close to the road end up with nearly every square inch covered in graffiti and trash mounds abound. Luckily, these seem to be a pretty good shape. Pictured here is the Daylight West Arch.
