Jackson's Gem

McCammon Falls

Tributary Of McCammon Branch

Jackson County

Grey Hawk

Kentucky

 

With a perfectly forecasted day of clouds and cool weather on Saturday I couldn't resist getting out and doing some waterfalling. I'd been wanting to revisit McCammon Falls in Jackson County, Kentucky in good conditions for some time. It had been 4 years since I had spent some quality time with this waterfall, which also happened to be my first visit. Although I had been here two more times after that both those visits were of the extreme, once with no water and the other there was way too much water. On this latest visit I couldn't have asked for better flow. See that tree on the left? I hate that tree. In the case of this shot I thought it fit the composition well, but to get straight on shots of the falls showing both tiers is quite the challenge since the dead limbs protrude across the view of the waterfall. I've been threatening to bring an extendable saw and trimming the limbs off for some time now but on this latest trip I wasn't in the mood to fight a 6 ft tall pole with a sharp blade on the end in the vehicle all day long. Some day though, I'm going to clean that view up.
