Every once in a while, you end up with a day that is almost perfect.
Today was that day.
We all need those days to hold on to. For on those other kinds of days, the not so nice days, we need to have these pages in time to pull out…..to dust off ……and to remember.
Do YOU remember?
You have them, too.
If you close your eyes and let your mind go, you will find yourself there. Back to one of those special places on a special day…..that day that was as close to perfect as days can be.
Today was day 4 of my visit to the NC mountains. Today, not only did I get to have a fantastic visit with a dear friend, I got to go waterfall hiking with my most treasured of all people….my family. We went to Pisgah National Forest and hiked to Toms Spring Falls (a.k.a Daniel Ridge Falls). One of the most beautiful places to be in WNC is in Pisgah, as no matter what you are looking for (vistas, waterfalls,streams, pathways, bridges)…it can be found there.
Here are a few snapshots into my day. And if I ever get lost, if I ever can’t seem to locate these images in my mind, thank God I can come back here. Thats the beauty of photo blogging. 🙂
Ok….had to slip a few more hiking photos in. Yesterday we hiked through Pisgah Forest to a waterfall called Skinny Dip Falls. It was worth the short (but difficult) 1/2 mile hike into the forest to see this waterfall. The trail was gorgeous (and had the most interesting tree I have ever seen)…and the waterfall consisted of 4 falls along a beautiful stream. In the summer, people swim here in the clear deep swimming hole section of this area. In October, it was quiet and deserted (just the way I like it!) as ythe water is too cold for swimming. Hope you enjoy the photos!
