The pictures are taken in Red River Gorge,  KY and Cumberland Falls – Corbin,  KY.

The Red River Gorge is a unique area of the Daniel Boone National Forest that is designated as a National Natural Landmark. Located in eastern-central Kentucky, within the sandstone belt of the Pottsville Escarpment, this area has been beautifully sculpted by millions of years of wind and water erosion.

Cumberland Falls is a set of waterfalls on the Cumberland River. It is located near Corbin Kentucky on the border of the McCreary and Whitely counties.The Falls are situated in such an odd way facing north and flowing north, as to reflect the light of the Moon to make a rainbow like arch, an optical phenomenon called a ” moonbow”. The Moonbow can be seen here on clear, strongly moonlit nights. It is sometimes called the “Niagara of the South”, “Little Niagara”, and even Moonbow Falls.
