Cumberland Falls Resort State Park


Happy Monday,

I am continuing our road trip. After leaving Mammoth Cave NP and Bowling Green Kentucky we headed to our next night stay at the Cumberland Falls Resort State Park.

This is a Google map of our road trip. The trip dates were from May 1st to may 11th.



On May 7th-8th we stayed at the  Cumberland Falls Resort Lodge,. We had a nice room in the lodge for the night. Their restaurant was perfect for dinner and breakfast the next day.


A view of the river above the falls.


Pretty sure this is a Song Sparrow, seen near the river's edge.




Rainbow at the Cumberland Falls.


The recent rain helped the falls look great with lots of water.


Me and my shadow at the falls.





The view of the river and park  from the resort's restaurant. I was happy to see a worker come along and fill all the bird feeders outside the windows.




Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.



Thanks to the hosting team of Our World Tuesday!
I hope to see you there. Thanks to the host today. Enjoy your day.

As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

It really is very beautiful. I've often heard about the Moon-bow there at certain times. I would love to visit the falls.

Tom said...

...yet another destination to put on the list.

It looks beautiful, lovely nature Eileen.

Barbara Rogers said...

Great to see a map of your trip as well! The falls must have made a break in any river travel for early pioneers. Beautiful photos!

Marit Sønstebø said...

Hello,

What a beautiful place! Pretty images from the Cumberland Falls.
Happy Monday, and Happy New Week!

Another great stay at the Resort Lodge. A beautiful place this Cumberland Falls. Great view from the restaurant too!

Mary Hone said...

That waterfall is gorgeous. What a nice place to stay too.

Sandra said...

I last saw this Cumberland falls view of river and rocks and falls about 60 years ago, it was 1957 I think and I don't think the resort was there.

Michelle said...

We have camped here before. Such a beautiful place!

Cloudia said...

So nice hanging with you, E

Sondra said...

I love this place I camped there in late Aug of 2016. I met this preacher and his wife who had just began a journey camping in a dodge caravan, and I often think of them.

A beautiful area to vacation. I'm glad you included the map and the distance. It helps me figure out where you were, lol. It looks like you travelled quite a long distance.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

I always get a kick out of your shadow shots :)

Jeanie said...

That's quite the road trip and a gorgeous destination!

Denise inVA said...

Great trip Eileen and great photos. Thank you for including the map. I always enjoy looking at them. Enjoy your week :)

Kalantikan said...

Wow those are lovely scenes, most specially because of that waterfalls. I am always attracted by them. By the way, till now i don't know how to put the trails on google map as you did, how to put those blue lines. Can you tell me how to do that? Sorry Eileen, i am so dumb with these things, hehehe.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Looks like a good outing. I love your rainbow shadow selfie!

rupam sarma said...

Stunning views. Awesome pics.

Phil Slade said...

That's some journey Eileen. Looks to be a beautiful location there and even bird feeders at your window. They must have known you were on the way.

Hello Minoru, you will love Yellowstone. It is one of my favorite parks to visit. Enjoy your trip! Thanks for the comment.

Jill Harrison said...

I always enjoy going travelling with you and seeing the world through your camera Eileen. Happy travels!

Penelope Puddlisms said...

A nice picture of you and your shadows taking a picture of the rainbow. That’s serendipity at play. :)

Weekend-Windup said...

Sounds that you had a wonderful trip! Amazing shots! Happy to see the rainbow on the water! Beautiful waterfalls:)

Ruth Rieckehoff said...

Wow, that trip looks fantastic! I need to plan my own summer road trip. So far, we are camping this weekend in San Diego County. Really like the waterfalls you have shown here. It must be nice to stay in a lodge close to a river.

Betsy Adams said...

I love following you along your journey.... You definitely got to visit several of our very favorite places... Anyone who wants to see a pretty waterfall should visit Cumberland Falls... The water is usually always good --and that rainbow is so special. We went there once and saw the Moonbow during the night.... That was very special also.

Gla you enjoyed it.. We've stayed in their lodge also and eaten in their restaurant...

Hugs,
Betsy
Did you see where I mentioned you on Facebook? I posted a sunrise picture from the Thorofare Mtn. Overlook near Skyland from our trip there last August.... I think you posted a similar picture not long ago.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

There is so much to see and do in that area, Eileen. I'm sad I never visited those places---maybe someday I will! The waterfalls are dramatic and so beautiful--love the rainbow they made

Linda W. said...

Beautiful lodge and scenery!

Jeanna said...

Very pretty sights and you are hitting places I've always wanted to go. You've got a great eye for birds so I'm sure you're right. Excellent rainbow capture!

Our photos said...

That is a very nice place !

Looks a lovely area, I enjoyed your photographs.
Lovely to see the rainbows and your shadow shot was fun!

Enjoy your week

All the best Jan

Al said...

It looks beautiful. Kentucky is still on my to-visit list.

Giga said...

Hello. I loved your trip and the place. The river and the falls are very charming. In addition to your shadow on the water there are also beautiful rainbows. I love them. Best wishes and thanks for kindly commenting with me.

Debbie said...

what a pretty area eileen, the waterfalls are exceptionally beautiful!! gorgeous capture of the song sparrow, that is one i see in my yard all the time. never in the trees, only on the ground...and it is a quick mover!!

the rainbows are such a treat, and a cool find when produced by the water/waterfalls!!!

i have never been to kentucky, i should add this area to my travel list!!!

ElizrdbthSpeaks said...

i am waving right back, what a great day, i love the rainbow. so fun!! take care. bye. ( :

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I remember Mammoth Cave NP from when we were RVing... do not remember the Falls which means we must have missed it, darn it! I would love to go back to Kentucky -- we definitely enjoyed our time there.

Linda said...

Hmm, looks like a place I'd like to see! That's a lot of road to cover considering that it's mountainous.

Angie said...

Eileen - this is one of the spots my husband and I went for our honeymoon! Back then, we were poor as church mice, but more importantly, as a resident alien, he could not leave the US right after we were married, so no EXOTIC honeymoon for us! We loved this part of our trip, including some rafting on the river.

By the way, I may not be commenting as often for the next few weeks since I will have my in-laws visiting from the UK. We are going to have a great time!

Jeevan said...

Loved the lodge you stayed at the park and the river and falls are just wonderful!

Powell River Books said...

The lodge looks like a wonderful place to stay, rustic and welcoming. It's nice to have a loop trip so that you see different things as you progress. - Margy

The map really helps! I'm not good at US geography!
