These pictures are from The Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina - as we were on our way to go see Alan's daddy in Sylva - we made a couple of stops. Going through the gorgeous mountains on the Cherohala Skyway - I noticed GORGEOUS scenery so we stopped and snapped these:
That VIEW! (the family & the mountain view-spectacular!!) HA! I see my lens and lenscap in front of them - DO NOT KICK THAT off...(they didn't, LOL)
Isn't that just GORGEOUS!!! God's beautiful creation just amazes me :)
My hair is blowing - my HAIR is blowing! (I hate when my hair blows!! "Gosh - you're such a GIRL!" - those words uttered by my oh so handsome son(even when he squints, hee hee) you see pictured with me here...(gotta love him ;) )
I love this shot!
Wow we're up HIGH. We even went HIGHER. (insert bug eyes and lots of ear popping here)
(This is what goobers do.....)
Ok so now we're on our way - moving RIGHT along...we pass THIS sign. I know some of you may see a sign like this and think..."Umm what is she doing taking a picture of a sign like that?" and "Oh man we see that everyday!" LOL...well this is just something you don't see in Texas - well at least I don't ...
Ohhhhh ohhhhh I pick THAT one...the one on the very far right on the top...or wait should I go with the one on the left? Orrr.....oh well I have a few months to decide, right?
AND - I told my hubby if we see someone selling home made jellies or honey - he must stop.
Isn't he sweet? He really DID stop for me!
I don't know - it's something about the sign that draws me in....
and the jellies.....
I got this one - well a peach, a grape & a plum. I got honey too. Yum. WAY yum.
This one too!
and now we're onto our destination of adventure for the day - Linville Falls!
Gosh it was pretty HOT and they wanted me to do what? HIKE? ME? Oh my....
Almost there....a few more steps.....
YAY!! Here we are!! This is the lowest point of the falls....so peaceful and serene!
I worked up an appetite...
Remember that COOL red wildflower from earlier? Ok WOW - check this one out I saw on the trail! (but I have to say my hubby took this picture - that camera felt like 500 lbs around my neck so he carried it for me. I wish it was ME he'd have carried. LOL!)
Saw some WAY COOL and TALL as all get out trees.....
So that's it for our journey to Linvale Falls! We had a GREAT (and EXHAUSTING day!) next stop - off to see his daddy...(I'll post those sweet pics tomorrow!)
Hope you're having a GREAT weekend! I'm busy working on some layouts for CMK, Design X and some Glitz too! (You'll have to check out the Glitz blog the week of Aug 28th - I'll be posting a GREAT 10 minute project!)
