Broke Leg Falls #4 - 2

Broke Leg Falls #4
Broke Leg Creek
Menifee County
Wellington, Kentucky

I was in the neighborhood last October and I just couldn't resist stopping by what was at one time one of my favorite waterfalls, the towering 60 ft. tall Broke Leg Falls in Menifee County, Kentucky. Back in Spring of 2012 during a massive tornado outbreak the falls and the gorge took a direct hit competely raking the surrounding landscape. As we drove US 421 on our way to Red River Gorge it was quite apparent that the leaves were changing in the higher elevations and since the falls was just a little under 9 miles out of the way I just had to satisfy my curiosity. Boy, was I glad I did. One of the few remaining trees, which happens to be right in front of the falls, was in full color and although you can see there was still damage, I thought it was a pretty scene, a scene that at one time I thought would never want to shoot again.
