More from Fall Creek Falls


Here's another set of photos from our trip on Sunday with family to Fall Creek Falls (about an hour southwest of here). If you want to see more pictures from Fall Creek Falls (since it is a VERY special place to George and me) --look on my sidebar on the right and find labels. Click on FALL CREEK FALLS listed under the Labels.


Above is a picture taken from the lodge looking across the lake. See those people out there in a rowboat???? Ready to go???? It looked like SO much fun!!!! More pictures are below.







Here we are --after a delicious buffet dinner. George took this picture of us. At the head of the table is Wes. On the left is John, Carol and Bonnie. And on the right is Darlene and me.







I love this picture showing the green evergreen and the red Fall colors.







Now let's enjoy the yelllows of Fall.







You can see Fall Creek Falls in the lower right corner--but I took this picture to show some of the Fall Colors along the gorge.







George took this picture of us ---standing VERY close to the Cascades.


George and I are on our way to Tallulah Gorge in Georgia today. I will have the laptop---so I'll catch up when possible (and when I have a signal in those mountains).


There will be one more post (using timer) tomorrow from Fall Creek Falls.


Hope you all will have a great week. I'll get back with you when I can.
Hugs,

P.S. I apologize for not clarifying that "Nanner Puddin" is nothing more than Banana Pudding--Southern Style (with all of the calories shaken OUT).... ha ha ha.... I thought everyone knew what "Nanner Puddin" was!!!!! My My!!! This ole' southern gal is 'lahrning'.....

Hey Betsy...
I'm NOT a Southern Girl BUT I always knew that 'Nanner Puddin' was Banana Pudding...Couldn't say banana when I was a toddler so it was always Nanner back then..
Truly Love the Reds & Evergreens of your photo's, couldn't get anymore NEON than that...
Happy you all had a Grand time together and what a place to do it!!!
My Best~Marilyn

Diane said...

What a beautiful lake and lodge, Betsy. Gorgeous fall colors, too.

Chris said...

A truly lovely trip today, the colours are stunning. Was a bit worried about ou on the edge of that drop. We used to have nanners and custard.

Kelly said...

...love those falls!!! (Really like the photo of the intense red tree...so pretty.)

Lola said...

Love that "nanner puddin". Just about my fave.
I got my Blue Ridge magazine today & low & behold an article in it was---your guessed it. It was about Fall Creek Falls. So I'm gettin a close up & personal viewpoint here. Love it. Can't wait to see Tulluah Gorge. Been a long time since I've seen that one.
Have fun, be careful & be safe.

Karin said...

Love every last picture!! Great shots! Thanks for sharing them. You do get to go on so many wonderful adventures and I enjoy my visits alongside you!

Snowbrush said...

I used to visit relatives in Trenton, Georgia (about 15 miles from Chattanooga) years ago, but the old ones passed on, and I was never close to the young ones. Besides, I live in Oregon now, and it's a bit of a long way to go, about 2,500 miles in fact.

Snowbrush said...

P.S. Since you love waterfalls, you really MUST visit Oregon. I think we must have about one per resident here. Course, they flow over lava instead of over limestone or sandstone. Such a different place but beyond beautiful nonetheless.

Cookie said...

LOL! Glad my nanner puddin question made you smile. I really never heard of that! and I went to school in the south. Well, I call VT the south cuz I'm from the north!
Love those fall pictures. The first one looked more like summer for a minute. And I can't believe you guys are all wearing short sleeves still!
Have a good trip :)

Cherie said...

hello, ms. betsy, it's getting Christmassy over here with the greens and reds! looks like you all had great fun!~~~don't stand too close to the cascades next time, please. wasn't it scary???

Bird Girl said...

You guys had a great time - I can tell - but then again - you ALWAYS have fun with your friends and relatives and most of all - George!

SquirrelQueen said...

I love the shot of the lake with the rowboat, I would love to be out there on that lake.

I guess anyone outside of the south doesn't know about Nanner Puddin, I didn't know banana had a 'b' until I got to high school, lol.
