Little River Canyon, AL

As you probably know (if you have followed my blog for awhile), George and I LOVE going to canyons... The small canyon near us is Fall Creek Falls, where I got my first kiss!!!! There are 6 waterfalls at Fall Creek Falls which we love, but the canyon itself is very beautiful. Another canyon we love is near Clayton, GA. That one is Tallulah Gorge and it also has several waterfalls.

This third one pictured above (the one we visited on Valentine's Day) is Little River Canyon, near Fort Payne, Alabama. The waterfalls always draw us to these canyons --but the canyons themselves are totally awesome. And with these new cameras (and those long lenses), George and I loved the canyon visit.

Little River flows through rugged, beautiful, forested landscapes into the 12-mile-long and 600-foot-deep Little River Canyon. Hope you enjoy a few pictures of the canyon itself today showing the river, the rock formations, and icicles. There will be many more pictures to come (birds in the canyon, kayakers, beautiful boulders, and of course---waterfalls).

We managed to get out yesterday --so we drove to Hendersonville to check on George's parents. Once we got off of the Cumberland Plateau, there was very little snow. And in Hendersonville, there was none. George's parents are doing fine---but like so many folks this time of year, they are ready for warmer weather. When we got back home last night, it started snowing AGAIN here. I wanted snow this winter---so I definitely GOT it!!!! ha
