In the spring of 2018 I got to spend some quality time running around Kentucky’s Cumberland Falls and the Big South Fork National River And Recreation Area with some good friends! Our last evening there everyone was pretty tuckered out but myself and Dave Halbig decided to press on and visit one of my favorite Kentucky waterfalls. Though I wish we had of gotten a little earlier start we arrived at the trailhead around 6:45 for the moderate 1.3 mile hike, then made it to the waterfall at 7:30. Though I’ve been to Dog Slaughter Falls many times over the years, only one time did I not have super funky light conditions. I realized that every time I had visited the falls that I was there in morning, so for change of pace I decided to switch things up and visit in the evening. What a difference! The sun was far out of sight from inside the small gorge, and though there were blue skies above, conditions were near perfect! I came away with what I think are the best photos of this waterfall I’ve taken in over 6 years! Though we were limited by time and daylight we were able to work the falls till around sunset. We then packed it up and bolted out of there, making the trek out in 32 minutes and arriving at the car with only minutes to spare where we would have had to pull out the head lamps. Damn good times and a hell of a workout I must admit!
