Here’s What It Looks Like When Every Waterfall In Kentucky Is Completely Frozen

Unless you’ve been lucky enough to have been on an extended vacation over the past several weeks, you know it has been COLD in Kentucky. And not just a little cold. So cold, in fact, that ice has formed on large bodies of water and our state’s gorgeous waterfalls have also turned into frozen works of art. Chasing waterfalls is a favorite activity in the warmer months in the Bluegrass State, but thankfully a few brave (and bundled up) photographers were able to capture these natural wonders in their frigid state. Take a peek at what it looks like when every waterfall in Kentucky is frozen.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The temperatures are starting to rise in Kentucky, but it’s likely they will dip again before winter is over. Perhaps these photos have inspired you to do a little waterfall chasing this season! If you prefer the warmth, here’s a video that shows that these waterfalls (Flat Lick Falls in this case) will eventually return to their liquid state.
