Rutledge Falls

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Although Dad is legally blind, he still enjoys going for rides whenever possible.  So we take him for an outing when we go down to Tullahoma to see him.  One of the places we've visited in Tullahoma is Rutledge Falls.  This pretty waterfall is on private property, but the owners have made it accessible to the public.

I'll bet just the sound of that water is impressive, even if he can't see it clearly.

So beautiful!

I am glad your Dad is still alive.
Must be a strong and healthy man.
Good for him.
Well eyes they go sometimes but the other senses get stronger and he can still enjoy a lot of things without seeing them.

This falls is beautiful. I'm thinking that even if your Dad can't see that well,he can still hear the sound of the water and that alone would be refreshing.

Boy that falls is beautiful. Wouldn't it be neat to a such a falls on your own property. I have a small waterfall that is an outlet from my pond but it is small.
I am sure you Dad enjoyed the outing. MB

Imagine having that waterfall on your own private property! It's so nice that the owner lets the public have access. And so nice, too, that you take Dad Adams with you when you visit.
