Winter Waterfalls

Here in Central Kentucky there are quite a few of the roads that were cut right through small mountains of rock, like you see in the photo below. These are not tunnels through the mountain, but more like they were just sliced through the entire mass of rock.

As a result, you can see some very beautiful designs in the rock, both in color and arrangement, that can be downright distracting to a Floridian like myself who is not used to such a thing.

However, even more mesmerizing to see are the frozen waterfalls that form in the cold temperatures on the exposed rock facings up here when rain falls or snow melts.

Even more interesting is the fact that these frozen pieces of nature’s art are not formed by water running off the top of the rock, but from water seeping through the cracks of the rock strata itself.

They are really quite beautiful to see as you’re driving along the roads that cut through these small mountains of natural formed rock.

I just wanted to try and share these gorgeous winter waterfalls with you. I hope you enjoy.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
