#WW: Cumberland Falls & an American Indian Flutist

Good-morning, my lovelies! It’s hump-day already and we’re almost at the half-way mark of this brand new month. The last of the summer days are really melting away. Thank you for making me apart of your day. I want to take you to Cumberland Falls State Resort Park.

Years ago, we were fortunate to see the Moonbow. That’s been like forever and a day ago in my memory. I want to find another opportunity to see it, but the conditions have to be perfect and that’s kind of hard to plan with Cumberland Falls almost 2-hours north of Knoxville.

Two Saturdays ago, we took a day trip to Corbin, Kentucky to see the waterfall known as the Niagara of the South. Our last visit was in the late 90s when our children were quite young.

Although, disappointment met my eye to see muddy water tumbling over the fall, it didn’t stop me from photographing my subject. After all, that’s one reason I wanted to visit. I definitely want to go back this fall to capture the colors of autumn surrounding the falls and hopefully clear waters next time.

While there the alluring haunting tones of an American Indian flute drifted through the air to my ear. I wondered where the music was coming from while I looked around. I thought, did the park have an outdoor sound system to broadcast music from the gift shop? There among the trees on a rock sat this guy….

DSC_3691I had no idea who this man was or even if I would find him on the net, but I decided to ask my pal, Google. I entered these keywords: Cumberland falls+native American flute. I got a few hits. The two top hits were YouTube videos. I clicked on both. Luckily the second video featured the very person I was looking for. Allow me to introduce to you, Robert Mullinax

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.
