Fall Creek Falls State Park --4/21/10--Part I


George and I had a beautiful day yesterday at Fall Creek Falls. You will have to read yesterday's post (click
HERE) in order to know WHY we were there!!!!!! Today and tomorrow, I will show you a few pictures from our beautiful day! Above is a picture of the Cane Creek Cascades.. Below are more.




We always enjoy seeing the deer when we go to the park. This one stopped and looked at us --but didn't run away!!! I think they are used to people --especially ones like me who are taking their picture.




I was fascinated at the reflections in the water here. This is near the area where I got my first kiss in 2001..... We had to relive that moment you know!!!




'
Spring is a beautiful time to visit the park since there were lots of dogwoods blooming ---along with many beautiful wildflowers. These little blue flowers reminded me of the Bluebonnets I used to see in Texas. Aren't they pretty?




One of our favorite large waterfalls at Fall Creek Falls is one that is in a different area of the park from most of the others. This one is named PINEY FALLS--and we are viewing it from an overlook.





Here's the "Happy Couple" talking about all of our wonderful memories we have had together since that special date on April 21, 2001.

I'll post more pictures tomorrow . But --you need to know that we will be out-of-pocket for about 3 days while we head to West Virginia to do some waterfalling!!!! I will have the laptop--IF we have Verizon service. BUT--if I don't get to your blogs, don't give up on me. I will try to catch up sometime!!!!

Hugs to all,

Such a beautiful and special place, Betsy! How wonderful that it holds such fond memories for you and George. And I'm happy that you got to relive that first kiss! :-)

Those cameras are doing a good job. The photos are so crisp and clear. Of course the person clicking deserves praise too. It does look a very romantic place . First kiss memories ahhhhh such a romantic. I see you have shed all those jackets and scarves that you had on a few months ago. It must feel good. Have a good time waterfalling and kissing.

Kelly said...

Susie said...

I love that pic of the reflections in the water. At first glance I thought you were standing on a cliff side.

Enjoy your trip and be safe.

Harriet said...

Great pictures! Have fun on your next adventure. I have put Fall Creek Falls on my list of places I want to visit this summer.

Sunny said...

Great pictures Betsy. The reflection is amazing.
Have fun on your trip.
Sunny :)

Karin said...

The reflection is so clear that at first I thought you were standing on a cliff overhang - then my eyes focused! Phewwww! What a gorgeous place! Love the deer, awwww! You two are such an inspiration! We all need to learn to celebrate each other like that! Hugs! Have a great time away!

Dorothy said...

More great pictures! Love the one with the reflections!! Hope you and George have a great trip!

Sandra said...

I am glad you always put pictures of you and George with your photos. you do such a good job of it with your timer. i have never tried my timer. i might play with it, but i don't want me in the photo. the deer is wonderful, wish I could have seen him/her. as always beautiful falls. are you on a high ledge? or is the water just below you, i see your reflection and I do hope that is not a ledge.

Pam said...

For a second that one photo of you made me think you were standing on a big huge cliff! But then I realized that it was a reflection.

Valerie said...

Oh, I love to hear of your adventures and see the pictures. The reflection shot is so cool - you can barely see where the reflection starts and the real ends!

Happy 'anniversary'! It is so great when we can remember all of those special dates and places. My hubby gave me my first kiss in a grocery store parking lot. We had been 'seeing' each other as friends for about a year. I was working at the store and he came to visit me on my break. That was when we officially began dating. He had come to tell me he had been thinking that maybe we should be more than friends. A year and a half later we were married! What a blessing to have such wonderful memories!

Of course the grocery store is gone now - and in it's place a work out gym. Not sure we want to go back there to relive the moment - but you have an extra special place!

Bird Girl said...

Some gorgeous pictures of the falls and the deer! That one of you standing by the edge with the reflection is very three dimensional - almost makes me dizzy - cool! You guys are just so cute together - have fun!

thesouthernlady64 said...

Have a great trip. You all are like gypsies, always taking off to another falls or trip. I love the deer picture. That is such a good one.

Cicero Sings said...

Love the reflection picture ... beautiful. Sounds like you two are having fun ... as usual!!! Never fear, we'll all still be here ... lucky for you I haven't been posting much. Ha, ha. Unlike you, I've not a whole lot of much to tell these days.

Roses and Lilacs said...

What a beautiful place and very romantic. Hope you have a wonderful trip.

Daisy said...

Congratulations on celebrating your special day, Betsy! Such great photos in this post and the one before it too. I always love when you post pictures of deer. They don't stay around to get their picture taken here. I really like the reflections in the water too.

Julie said...

That one pic where you see your reflection actually looks like you are standing on a rock cliff and it falls off right there next to you for miles! I got nervous when I first saw it because I felt you were in danger being so close to the edge!!! LOL. I calmed down when I realized it was water there!

Have a wonderful trip and for goodness sake, don't worry about visiting blogs while you are having the time of your life!!!

xoxo- Julie

Shorts!!!!! You two are wearing shorts??? I've seen a few brave souls sporting them around here but it's much too chilly.

It looks like you had a wonderful time. Beautiful reflection and I love the flowers and vegetation. Hope it was a wonderful day for both of you. Diane

Oh I hope you are having a wonderful time... great pictures. Fall Creek Falls is a favorite of mine. We will be heading your way over the weekend... taking the offical tour of Knoxville for my daughter. Yikes.

wildlifewatcher said...

I am so glad you had such a nice outing at that very special park! Nice photographs of you both and the ever so wonderful scenery and wildlife. Yes, that deer looks like it's posing for your camera.

I have also been to Falls Creek State Park in TN. One of the more picturesque parks in the state and worth a visit from residents and tourists alike.

It seems that for the two of you "your cup runneth over"! And that's a good thing because it spills over on all of us!

I think this is one of the most beautiful waterfalls you have shown yet! Loved the photo of you and George in your matching shirts! (I really need to get Greg and I some - it makes for cute photos!) Hope you are having a wonderful trip! I have missed you - this darn computer virus really knocked me out of commission but I'm back!
Hugs,

What a beautiful place, I love the first photo of the falls. This would be the perfect place to "fall" in love. The deer is so sweet, it was nice of him to give you a pretty pose.

Hope you and George are having a wonderful trip.
