I could feel the waterfall's mist on me from here!!
On Saturday afternoon I represented Midway College Admissions at a recruiting event at Cumberland Falls State Park Lodge. The event itself went pretty well. I was able to speak to several prospective students. These events are also great for getting our college's name out there. All in all, it was a success!
After the event, I decided that I wanted to see the Park's main attraction, Cumberland Falls. Known as "The Niagra of the South", Cumberland Falls is the largest waterfall in the southeastern United States. It measures 70 feet high and 125 feet wide. It's truly a beautiful and amazing sight. It's not only amazing visually, but the sound is amazing as well! Mother Nature is truly an amazing thing. The most interesting fact about Cumberland Falls is that it's one of only two waterfalls in the entire world (Victoria Falls in Africa being the other) where you can see a "moonbow". A moonbow, or lunar rainbow, is created when light from a full-moon refracts off of the water from the falls creating a prism of light in the mist of the falls. Doesn't that sound amazing??
I am going to check this summer's lunar calendar so that I can witness a moonbow for the very first time.
Have you ever seen a waterfall? If not, would you like to?
