Sunrise over Cloudland Canyon on April 20, 2013. I tiptoed out of the cabin very quietly, I didn't even wake the dog!
After the sun came over the mountain, it was in such sharp contrast from the darkness. I stepped back from the rock that I had been standing on and was amazed at the golden lightflooding the rocks and trees around me. It looked like an angel was with me.
Later that same morning, I went on a hike with my family. I have a short video where we stopped at this clear mountain stream. You can hear my brother-in-law say that there is a lot more water in this stream than the last time they were here. Also, you can hear my sister-in-law talking sweetly to her dog and my brother is making sure that we all have plenty of water. Thanks, Dale! (You can hear me say one word ,"beautiful". You know I use that word a lot.) Even with all of us talking, you can still hear the birds. It really was beautiful!
This next little clip is of the first waterfalls that we hiked to, Cherokee Falls. Like my brother said, hard to believe that the gentle mountain stream turns into this cascade of water! (The water is LOUD, you might want to turn your sound down a bit!)
Hope you liked this trip to Cloudland Canyon. It was a beautiful time of year to enjoy it and a fantastic spot to celebrate my Dad's birthday!
Sorry I have not had much time lately to visit all the blogs that I like to read! Hope everyone is doing well and been able to cope without me! (It's hard, I know, but hang on, and I will be back with all of you soon!)
