    Sweet falls, great view from the top too. You looked like a dot compared to the size of the rock face at the base of the falls–it really put it in perspective. Definitely a place that I want to check out. You know Im a fan of anything that's the tallest, deepest etc etc. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice place.  Yahoo Falls is taller but it reminds me of Ash Cave at Hocking Hills SP in in southern Ohio.  Here's my late winter/early spring visit, March of 2014 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kj7tzT_CYVM

  7. WOW!!!! great video and place, I will have to tell Mark to put it on our GO TO list. We will be hiking in KY soon. Great shot hanging the camera out, awesome.

    Wow that was great. At first the magnitude of the falls didn't seem large. Then the lower shots really showed. 113 ft is quite a drop. I imagine after a good down poor the fall get quite intense. Thanks for sharing! Cheers Paul
