Dry Falls

Oh, the irony of the name! Dry Falls is located in Highlands, North Carolina. The parking area is on the smaller side so I'd definitely recommend getting there early or on a less traveled day. A short walk down some stairs leads you to the waterfall, where you can walk behind the falls. Plan on… Continue reading Dry Falls

Bridal Veil Falls

Located in Highlands, NC, Bridal Veil Falls is a breathtaking waterfall you can pull right off on the side of the road to see. There is a parking area and also a walkway that allows you to take a stroll behind the waterfall. We visited here when I was 12 years old, and it made… Continue reading Bridal Veil Falls

Issaqueena Falls

Located near the Stumphouse Tunnel is the beatiful Issaqueena Falls. This is one that you can definitely take your stroller to (if you have a jogger) but for better views (which we couldn't climb down to) bring a baby carrier! This is a very easy hike to a platform to see the falls through the… Continue reading Issaqueena Falls

Sadlers Creek State Park

This park has grown to be one of our favorite spots to take the kids. Clean bathrooms, nice trails, and an incredible view of the lake. The first time we went we accidentally hiked the bike path (oops- what I get for not looking at a map) but it was a really great walk through… Continue reading Sadlers Creek State Park

Mud Creek Falls

After our stop at Sky Valley, we continued on to Mud Creek Falls. Our GPS was not very helpful in finding this waterfall! It is located inside of a golf course so at first we felt a little lost. However there are signs (which we noticed after driving around for bit) to point you in… Continue reading Mud Creek Falls

Henderson Falls Park

Back in mid-May we visited Henderson Falls Park in Toccoa, GA. It's a super nice park to bring the family to for a day! There is a paved walkway, several pavilions for picnics, bathrooms, and a nice playground for the kids. We went during the week and we were the only ones there- always a… Continue reading Henderson Falls Park

An Ode To Fall

Skip with me along the trees, hear the leaves crunch¬†down under our feet. The crisp breeze blows right through our hair, sending a chill and leaving us bare. Grab a jacket and tag along, we can sit by the fire right here on this log. Bonfires, cider, pumpkins and donuts, the season of Fall is… Continue reading An Ode To Fall

A Lingering Summer

Sweet signs of summer linger around, peaking out at dusk; just waiting to be found. Fall closes in and is here to stay, but I still hear the whisper of those sunny days. Taken with my galaxy s6 this evening.
