Lake Cumberland more beautiful than Big Sur, CA

What a beautiful picture of Lake Cumberland. I remember going down to the Dam with my parents on a Sunday afternoon, I guess back then that would be, by today's standards, a Sunday afternoon drive; and then we would go down to Swan Pond Bottom to the McClure Farm and buy watermelons.

My father used to talk about how bottom land was the most fertile. I was always so scared to look over the edge of the dam, maybe that is why I am so afraid of heights today. It just seemed so massive when I was a child.

I have been in every State and there is no other place as beautiful as the sight of Lake Cumberland. The Big Sur in California is beautiful, but Lake Cumberland beats it! -Von Price
