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

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.

Afternoon Stroll

I've been at my parents home most of the day (laundry day, oh joy!) And I took a lovely walk this morning. Behind the woods on the other side of their neighborhood is a sub division that was never built. The road was cemented in a big loop, but never any homes. It makes for… Continue reading Afternoon Stroll

Fairytales

Dreaming of a place.... I took this at Watkins Glen State Park in Upstate New York, circa 2013. One of the most stunning parks I have ever visited.

The Great Escape

In my Timehop app, these pictures I took last year at my parents placed popped up. They have woods behind their home and all kinds of little critters come out. I caught this guy stealing the birds snacks 🙂
