Hiking to Eagle Falls


While at Cumberland Falls I decided to commune with nature and do a little hiking.  I researched and found a 1.5 mile hike (3 miles round trip) to the smaller Eagle Falls.  I didn't want anything too adventurous since I was hiking alone and haven't done any hiking recently and this trail seemed just the thing.


I had such a great time.  It was so nice to have that time to just be in my own head and appreciate the beauty all around.  My only regrets - not taking a telephoto lens with me, leaving my iPod in the car (you know me, music is a must) and most importantly not thinking to bring water.


It was so much fun I'm determined to find more opportunities for a little hiking.  Do you have any favorite trails?


If I had remembered my iPod I might have listened to a little Ryan Bingham while I walked:

Wow. Yeah. Even without the telephoto lens, this is beautiful. Just beautiful. Love your hiking song, too.

And, as I usually do, I'm going to be all "listen to this, too!" It's annoying, kind of like a tic.

My favorite hiking song: One Day Like This by Elbow.

What stunning scenery! I love the one of just the bottom of the waterfall, it looks so fresh and clean.

i'm kind of glad you didn't bring your ipod so you're more aware of your surroundings for safety. i love the cool feeling i get from these photos even though it might not have been a cool day. the first waterfall is my favorite because i feel like i'm underneath it!
