|Want a little exercise???? Join us on a couple of short HIKES.|
|First of all, we have to get there!!!!! We count on our pretty Prius to take us on our journey!!!! NOW-- Think back to June 17, 2020 (which is the day we were there)!|
|It's a little CHILLY and DRIZZLY this morning --so don't forget to bring your Rain Jackets!!!|
|Along that trail, George is waiting for me to take pictures of the beautiful Mountain Laurel in bloom (which will be another post).|
|A smiling old woman --who is enjoying being out in nature on the Mountains to Sea Trail!|
|We then hopped back in our Prius and headed east of Asheville along the Blue Ridge Parkway to visit an absolutely beautiful waterfall, not too far from Mt. Mitchell. This was the beginning of that trail.|
|Isn't this creek gorgeous? The 1.2 mile (.6 each way) to the waterfall was a nice hike up an old logging road. I always love hearing the sound of rushing water when we hike in the woods. Are you still with us????|
|George is anxious to see that waterfall. (We had seen it a couple of times --many years ago.)|
|My first view of that amazing cascade, named Roaring Fork Falls. My waterfall book says that we are at an elevation here of 3,080 feet and that the cascade is about 45 feet high.|
|You should hear the sound of that rushing water. I would love to put up a tent and just stay here all night....|
|I sat on a rock while George took pictures with his tripod. Such incredible beauty!!!|
|Here is one of George's awesome pictures of Roaring Fork Falls. I love the 'silky' water!|
|This is another of George's photos --but this one is zoomed in a bit (so that you can see how much water was flowing down that cascade).|
|Like we always do, we used the tripod to get some pictures of us together...|
Well, I guess it's time to head back to Pisgah Inn and have some hot tea on the balcony.... Want some?
The hike is over --and we are now (7/13/20) 'back to the grind' at home!!!!! Hope your week is GREAT... I get my yearly Mammogram tomorrow and then on Wednesday, George visits our Eye Doctor (to hopefully get help for his failing eyesight)....
