Seen at Cumberland Falls, KY

Life in The Upper South...



Official website: Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. Just don't believe them when they say that Campsite 117 is shaded. It's only shaded from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. For the other 12 hours of the day, the site is in full sun.

In all of these photos, you can see the haze of high humidity and heat.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
