hiking again but more adventurous…

well let me tell you all the adventure me and hubby had today… Okay so We knew thunderstorms were going to happen today and I’ve been watching the radar like a hawk to keep updates on when they would hit.. Well the radar looked like it was a long ways from us still.. I wanted to go hiking so badly… Going on a different trail at our park.. Well it was going good until we reached the midpoint and we started hearing the thunder.. We pretty much power walked out way through that trail and the storm was coming closer and closer.. I was freaking out.. Nearly tripping over the tree roots several times… And when we got out of the trail.. We were near the park office.. My car was seriously on the other side of the bridge.. So we had to walk across it with the rain even pouring harder by the time we got to my car… I have learned a big lesson today… Wait until it sun shines again to hike… I did manage to get some pics before all the chaos…

yet another hike!

went to hike once again at the Cumberland Mountain State Park… and went on a different trail.. and found little hidden gems along the way… here’s the pics i took!

Ozone Falls Hike…

me and the hubby went to ozone falls today an hiked down to the bottom of the falls (also known as the gorge) well it was quite the accomplishment.. having to basically rock climb down and then rock climb up (something i’ve NEVER EVER done before!) but in the end it was worth the trip.. if you ever are in tn and want to take a trip here.. it’s worth it! (note: this waterfall along with fall creek falls was the locations used for the live action “jungle book” that came out in the 90’s! pretty cool huh? here’s the pictures of our adventure!

I love hiking!!!

I’m seriously hooked on hiking for like ever now… I just love nature and seeing all kinds of things that God created… i can’t wait for springtime when there will be all kinds of new stuff to capture on camera.. but even though a hike can wear you out.. it’s definitely worth it! here’s some of the pics from today!
