Cumberland Falls trip

Trip log: Aug 27-28
Beautiful views on a short hike around the falls. Hot. Bill remembered a family vacation to Cumberland Falls when he was 7-10 yrs old. We found the beach below the falls that was a swimming area before the pool was built in the 60s. He also remembered Dupont Lodge. We walked around the lodge and admired the great fireplace and log beams of the common room that was the dining room when he visited in the 50's. The new dining room overlooks the Cumberland River far below. Left CF little after 2 pm headed for Big South Fork.

Cumberland Fall with Rainbow. We were not here at the right time to see the Moonbow.

This used to be a swimming beach. Now even wading is prohibited.

The back terrace overlooks the view below. Bill remembers seeing a play on this terrace in the 1950s
