What absolutely wonderful weekend this has been. Rick and I went to the mountains yesterday to enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Though the leaves, for some reason, are not turning their pretty Autumn colors like they are supposed to it was still gorgeous.
We started off our day at Caesar's Head State Park enjoying the amazing view. The weather was so clear you could see all the way to Paris Mountain which is over 30 miles away. It was beautuful. Then we went on a short hiking trail to enjoy some rustic times.
After we left that park we went to Dupont State Park about 6 more miles up the mountain. They have 2 waterfalls there and though it was a kinda long hike to get to them them it was worth it. They were so pretty. It is amazing to look around you and see nothing but nature's beauty, especially in the world we live in today. Everywhere you look there is some new building popping up, but not here....just nature.
After we left Dupont we went to my favorite place to visit in the mountains.....Aunt Sue's Country Store. For those of you that have never been there allow me to explain about it. There is an older lady who sits outside and plays the keyboard for all who want to listen. She takes request and I do not think there is a song she does not know (especially gospel). There are lots of little shops and neat things to there and we had a great time.
After all this we had made quite a day of it and were pretty beat, so we headed home. It was a really great day and you can view all the photos here.
