Wolfe County, Kentucky
Finally, I got to go out and shoot some falls and boy did I get to go shoot some beauties! Myself and good friend Christopher met up with two more good friends Marcus and Bob at the rest area at the Slade, Kentucky exit along Mountain Parkway and headed into Wolfe County to hunt down some waterfalls. Our first on our itinerary was this beauty. Truly unique among the many waterfalls I've seen in the state, it definitely doesn't have the typical Kentucky plunge feature. I'll have to admit that this lovely falls surely is going on my list of favorite falls in the state.
Kentucky's loaded with waterfalls, the problem is, so many of them are privately owned. Myself and good friend Jason Haley visited this one in Wolfe County in the spring of 2017, what a beauty! The last time I visited here is was cold and snowy and it was nice to return in completely different conditions!

When I made my first trip to Van Hook Falls in Kentucky's Cane Creek Wildlife Management area I mentioned that I would never have to make the trip again as the waterfall was at bucket list waterflow. Well, that's not true. I will go back. It's one of Kentucky's prettiest waterfalls and the hike makes it more than worth it. There are so many vantage points to shoot the falls and I really didn't take full advantage of all of them. It's such a beautiful place, as the 40 ft waterfall plunges into a boulder strewn creekbed. Truly one of Kentucky's more gorgeous and lesser known gems, it is a place any true fan of nature would love to visit, and should.
