A Few Recent Images from Auxier Ridge in the Red River Gorge

Over the past few months, I have spent a fair bit of time out on Auxier Ridge in the Red River Gorge portion of Kentucky’s Daniel Boone National Forest.

So far this year, however, I have spent several weekends shooting some of the waterfalls throughout the Buckeye state. Here’s just a small sampling of what I’ve seen so far.
