Close your eyes and imagine a waterfall pouring over the edge and falling with crashes and splashes into a gorge littered with large boulders. Then, feel the mist from the falls blowing through the breeze and kissing your face. What you are imagining is known as the "Niagara of the South", this 125 foot wide waterfall appears to be a curtain of water falling to the gorge below. No matter when you see this waterfall it is amazing and it gives off a different appearance at night and during the day. One of the most amazing aspects of Cumberland Falls is the moon bow, which only shows up on nights when there is a full moon. That event in itself is worth visiting the falls and if you can plan a trip on a full moon then you will experience something like you have never seen. You won't find anything like this anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere so it really is worth a visit! The best times left to visit in 2007 to see the moon bow is April 30th, May 1st-4th and 30th-31st, June 1st-3rd and 28th-30th, July 1st-2nd and 28th-31st, August 24th-28th, October 24th-28th, November 22nd-26th, and December 22nd-26th.
