See, that didn’t take long at all, did it…thanks for being so patient.
Our first stop of the day was Helton Creek Falls. Beautiful place, off the beaten path some…dirt road and switchbacks. Lovely. But there was a church bus in the parking area when we got there – must’ve been a skilled driver…or he knew the area real well. Not sure I’d have driven anything bigger than our Tundra! It was definitely worth the trip.
So…enough of the waterfall. It was a beautiful walk, saw a couple dogs who were THRILLED to be in the water. TWO of the church kids left their Bibles behind, I caught ’em before they got too far back up the path.
Next stop? A place I’ve been in my mind every day since setting foot in the parking lot. Mountain Crossings at Walasi-Yi. The store at Neel Gap has been there a long time, and I found a pack that FITS when I was there. Of course it’s far too expensive for a sometime-hiker like me, but I think I’ll look for a less expensive one, now that I know how different it is if the durn thing fits. I had Duffy take a picture of me with it on, but I look like some cartoon witch – my chin reminds me of Hagatha…and the hair ain’t much better. All I need is a wart. If it bugs me enough, I’ll take it back down.
The point is, I gotta get to bed shortly. I’ll post the rest of my pictures in the VERY near future. Yes I will! Have a great night, and thanks for stopping by!
