Feasting On The Flood
The large waterfall on the right is the bottom part of Mark Branch Falls. I arrived soon after torrential rain transformed this already beautiful area into a water wonderland. It took a lot of effort to resist photographing the lesser water features along the way so I could spend more quality time here. I correctly assumed the others were just appetizers, and Mark Branch Falls was the main course. The water feature on the left is just one example of a beautiful whitewater stream and waterfall which I suspect normally has low or no flow. From where I was standing to take this photo I could see another tall (probably temporary) waterfall in the downstream direction.
Mark Branch Falls is beside the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail (section 38) in the Daniel Boone National Forest in McCreary County, Kentucky. The steps on the left are the only part of the trail which is visible in this photo.
