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


This is Part II of our day at Fall Creek Falls on Wednesday this week. Above is a great picture of the mountains and canyons around the state park. Like I said yesterday, we had a gorgeous spring day which we thoroughly enjoyed. Below are more pictures.





George is taking pictures above the Cane Creek Cascades brink.




See that green grass in the background???. Well---in 2001, we (along with many other people, since it was a Saturday) sat on a blanket looking at each other's photo albums. That's where the first kiss happened!!!!!! Wooooooooooooo!



I got a great picture of one of the MANY Buzzards --who fly in circles around the canyon... This picture was taken near what is called Buzzard's Roost. Isn't he pretty?



George captured this picture of me trying to take some pictures of the Cane Creek Cascades.



++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WARNING: A PDA coming up!!!!! You may want to close your eyes!!!!

I got my KISS!!!!!! Yeah Rah!!!!!

As I said yesterday, we are out-of-town for a few days. I have no idea whether we will have internet service where we will be... SO--if you don't hear from me for a few days, just remember that I'll be back SOON.

Have a great week!!!!
Hugs,

Great romantic post! Thanks so much for trying to make it easier for me to view your blog - this time it worked and I was able to!!!!!! I don't have an old computer - it has been upgraded to a large memory and hard drive by my brother in law computer geek! I do have problems with a few other blogs - they just freeze up the screen and I have to close. Thanks again for all your hard work on my part!

You two are just too cute!

Great shot of that buzzard!

That is a wonderful shot of the buzzard! I especially like seeing pictures of birds in flight. It is hard to take pictures of birds on the wing! Good job. Glad you had such a special visit!

Oh, that was a cute post!! I'm wondering if that's in Georgia or Tennessee but I'll google. Beautiful pictures!

I am also gone,Betsy.....we drove thru your lovely Tennessee this past Wednesday. We are now in Florida awaiting the birth of a grandchild.
The weather on our trip down from Michigan was so nice and it is gorgeous down here...80's, balmy and sunny.
Hope your trip is going nice too...I prepublished blogposts while I am away.

Daisy said...

Such a pretty spot, Betsy! And you two are such a cute couple. :D Hope you have a nice weekend!

No wonder you two fell in love with nature walks...just look at that scenery. Who ever thought a buzzard could be beautiful? Love the Openness of your relationship. So wonderful and free.
Bless You and I'm SURE You are Making More Memories

Betsy your photos are beautiful. I'd love to be as talented!!!!! Of course, the photo of the kiss is excellent but you didn't take that one--or did you?

Queen of Dreamsz said...

Hi Betsy,

Oh, how beautiful..and the buzzard too! :0) We got a few pictures of five of them roosting in the trees on our property..but they didn't stay..I guess they were just checking things out.

We've had a busy week....Thomas had hernia surgery on Friday morning in Knoxville. He's still in a lot of pain but has the pain meds to help out. All went well...now many weeks of recovery.

Y'all have fun and I'll chat with you when upon your return.

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥
