|Us at Cathedral Falls|
That is what happened on my sweetheart's 70th birthday!!!!! George wanted to prove to himself and others that he is really 30 (instead of 70) ----SO he managed a couple of steep bushwhacking hikes straight down (and back up) a mountain just to get some fabulous waterfall photos... I think he really is 30..... ha
We truly had a great trip --other than that fact that we cut it one day short and drove home on Saturday rather than Sunday. The reason for this: The Birthday Boy got sick. Actually both of us started with sore throats even before we went on this trip --but George's developed into some kind of an old cold or sinus infection. He was pretty miserable on Saturday --but feels much better today... Guess we are both too old for two trips in a row. Next year, we'll plan a little better!!!!
If you have kept up with us on Facebook, we posted some pictures there... BUT--I'm sure we both will be talking about this trip (AND the Arkansas trip AND the North Georgia mountain trip) for many, many blogs to come!!!! Today I will share with you eight pictures.. The first four were some of the highlights of the week. The last four are of the Birthday Boy.
Above was a picture of us taken on March 7th at a waterfall named CATHEDRAL FALLS. We had visited this waterfall last Fall when we were in West VA --but there was NO water coming over the falls. This time, as you can see, there was plenty of water!!! Cathedral Falls is located not far from Gauley Bridge, West VA. Be sure to click on all of the pictures to make them larger.

|Us at Blackwater Falls|
The picture of us above was taken at Blackwater Falls on George's birthday. Since they had the boardwalk and stairs gated in winter, no one could get close enough to the falls. SO---we had to take our pictures at the top. You can see a tiny bit of Blackwater Falls in the picture. (We did get some good pictures of the falls from the overlook across the gorge.)
Hope you had a great week... Hopefully soon, I'll be back to checking out your blogs and trying to catch up with you and your life... Thanks for being patient with me.
