I am still sorting through my captures from my trip to Cloudland Canyon State Park on Saturday. It is such an incredibly beautiful place. It was a long walk down the mountainside into the canyon in order to reach the falls. It was also much longer working our way back up. The kids held up extremely well and I think they are growing accustomed to the long hikes which pleases me more than I can say. We are building memories that I hope will stay with them long after I am. I fell asleep Saturday evening reliving our weekend adventure. I’m fairly certain I will be doing the same all week. This is an image captured at the base of the upper falls. The emerald-colored water was striking against the forest and boulders. You can find images from this adventure and many more at my site http://www.tobygant.com/cloudland. As always, thanks for stopping by. If you have any suggesting for parks to visit in the Blue Ridge or Smoky Mountains, please leave your comments on my blog.
