|The Birthday Boy at a very foggy Petit Jean State Park, 3/9/15|
Before checking into our cabin at Mt. Nebo, we spent part of the day hiking and checking out another favorite state park, Petit Jean State Park. (If you want more information about Petit Jean, click HERE.)
|Fog at Petit Jean State Park|
|George enjoyed taking pictures in the fog also.|
|I have always loved the rock formations at this state park.... Moss and lichen grow all around and over the rocks. Some call them "Carpet Rocks". Neat---even in the fog!|
|My Creative Shot of a NEAT Tree..... You like??????? Trees with odd shapes can tell us a story, can't they??? He may not feel beautiful but he IS!!!!|
|We visited Rock House Cave (really a shelter) --and even though we couldn't find them, there are supposed to be pictographs in that cave... Beautiful colors in there though;|
|And ---to get to the Rock House Cave, we hiked through/on TURTLE ROCKS... Don't they look like huge turtle shells????? YES--they DO!!!!! ha|
|Cedar Falls (from the upper overlook)|
|A great view of the canyon (Cedar Creek Canyon) from a new overlook (to us)|
The best part is that we could see the Upper Cedar Falls from here ---and we've never seen it before. SO exciting.... This is a great overlook --and we enjoyed seeing ALL of Cedar Falls..

Even though we had some fog and drizzle part of the day, we enjoyed our day at Petit Jean... We especially enjoyed visiting that new overlook --which I'm sure we will visit again when we are in the area.
After checking into our cabin at Mt. Nebo, the birthday celebration began. We went out to dinner for some steaks.. Later, back at the cabin, George opened his cards and gifts --and then enjoyed some birthday cake (his choice---Carrot Cake). It was a great day --and I think (hope) that George enjoyed it as much as I did!

HAPPY EASTER to ALL. Alleluia: HE LIVES!!!!!
