Cumberland Fall Visit Part II

After having our lunch and feeding the raccoons then we drove down to the riding stables. I didn't actually ride but I did get on a horse and I got there among them. It was so great to get to hug a horse and be near them. That, for me, was the real treat of the day! I have always loved horses. All of these horses were beautiful and well cared for. There was 8 there munching on hay. I made my rounds to all of them. The young man working there was very nice. My neighbor refused to get on a horse although I tried to convince her to!

This is my neighbor. She is a sweet lady, an animal lover, and loves a good laugh. She and I also go to the same church and are in the same Sunday School class.

















This is the river a little ways above the falls. That bridge down there in the one you cross to get there. The next picture is the water below the falls.

















Very pretty and loud! You can see the muddy water from all the rain we have had lately.

We had a great trip and I truly enjoyed it. I have some more scenery pictures that I'll post another day. Have a safe and Happy Labor Day everyone!

Well that was a grand day. Dinner and the scenery look great but not sitting on a horse.
You looked like you were having a great time. Didn't you have time to go for a ride??

Rachel, I loved the picture of you hugging the horses...that was such a pretty picture. You need to frame that one.

I love to stop there and horse back ride, but I haven't done that in a couple of years...because I feel sorry for the horse that has to carry me. It's nice just to visit with them.

I'm glad you had such a nice time with your neighbor and it's sounds like you all had a very exciting trip.

That is a beautiful area to visit and to be with one of God's creatures makes it more special. I love horses too although I did not grow up around them.

It sounds like a nice time. I'm a little leery of horses, but the ones that you saw look very unthreatening.

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

My mother has been there and she has told me a few times now that she wants all of us to move to Kentucky.
