Cumberland Falls State Park, Part 3: Gatliff Bridge and an Afternoon Swim
After my hikes to Cumberland and Eagle Falls I had a late lunch and then walked across the historic Gatliff Bridge which spans the Cumberland River just upstream of Cumberland Falls. The views both upstream and downstream were really lovely.
After the hiking and exploring I knew I wanted to take advantage of the $5 pool rate and man, was it refreshing. It was mid-afternoon by this time and it was so sunny and the water looked so blue that I decided to bring my camera along with me. And so after some laps I had a pretty good time playing around taking pictures of the shadows and bubbles – much to the confusion of the lifeguard and the other family using the pool.
Nice Silhouette pic! Very creative. The bridge made out of stone going over that peaceful flowing river looks inviting to have a picnic by and swim in, too.
Thanks, Lavinia! I love playing underwater with the camera. The bridge and river are super peaceful and I had a lovely little picnic there but no swim because it was just upriver of the waterfalls.
