Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for November shows another favorite place to visit anytime of year, but especially in the Fall. This photo of mine shows you "AUTUMN in the SMOKY MOUNTAINS of Tennessee", and I took this picture on October, 20, 2020.

Beautiful Fall Day for a Hike

πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’œReady for an Autumn Hike???πŸ˜πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰

Dear Blog Friends,  Welcome to OCTOBER.    Hope this month is GOOD for you and your loved ones!!!  I love Octobers here when the temperatures are cool and crisp and the big trees love to show off their colors... 

 My Post today is a hike we took in October of 2006  (long before I was blogging and long before our good cameras).   However,  we really enjoyed this hike --so I thought I would share it with you today.

We took a drive west of us to a small town named Beersheba Springs,  Tennessee... This community is in the South Cumberland Recreation Area in an area called the SAVAGE GULF....  We visited the Laurel Gulf Overlook and Bluff area,  then hiked down into the gorge through the "STONE DOOR";  Finally --we hiked back up and then visited Laurel Falls before heading home enjoying a gorgeous sunset on the way!!!!

 My pictures tell a story of our hike--so please hold your mouse over each picture for an explanation.... (Don't click--just hold the mouse over the picture.)

 











 Don't you love the sunset we saw on the way home?   Wow!!!  What a great day we had!

Hope you have a good October... George and I hope to go on a "Leaf Peeking" trip sometime this month --so hopefully,  I'll have some good pictures of the pretty colored leaves to share.  

Have a great month --and don't forget to get outside and get some exercise!!!

Hugs,
