Tell me we're going on a drive in the mountains and
I can be ready to go in about 15 minutes or so no matter the season.
I LOVE them that much!
But one of my most favorite seasons to be in the mountains is springtime--
because of the waterfalls, fresh green of the foliage and, well, so much more!
One of the waterfalls we passed...
can I just say my love of waterfalls and desire to get a nice photo of them
vastly overcomes ANY fear of coming in contact with poison oak.
So far I've been lucky:)
By the way,
this is a great time of the year to see waterfalls
and I have some more travel plans in mind:)
After a rather scary scramble downhill, we arrived on the bank of a river...
it was beautiful down there!
The lake we saw a bit earlier was really pretty too--
I LOVE to explore new areas on any of the trips we take...
but when my hubby turned left way before we were supposed to,
my heart got a mini 'workout'...
fortunately he had no intention of going too far on that particular road:)
Up on one of the 'viewpoints' we hiked too...
I would love to know the name of this particular flowering bush...
although this photo doesn't quite do it justice:(
One complaint here...
why, just because it's public land,
do people think they have the right to do anything they feel like?
It doesn't take long to pick up your litter and those coming after sure appreciate not finding trash while they take in all the beauty up there!
BTW, please feel free to insert your own deep sad sigh and irritated growl here
as I do everytime I see this.
On the road again...SO much green!
And with that I will bid you adieu for today as
I have a somewhat shorter journey to make today...
it's time to check my laundry drying outside and hope I see another hummingbird:)
Wishing you peace and love...
