Springtime in the Great Smoky Mountains

This spring I spent a rainy Saturday driving up to the Cherokee side of the Smokies … rain just makes spring all that more springy :)

Up first was Socco Falls (just outside Cherokee, NC)…





…then on to Mingus Mill in the Smokies.








… more pictures to come (Mingo Falls, Clingman’s Dome, and numerous others).

Biloxi Beach







…in the backyard.




Mobile Bay Sunset

No words can express… three stitch panoramic.  Mobile on the right, USS Alabama in the center, and a glorious sunset.

Views of Mississippi


We spotted this as we were humming down the interstate … and well we just HAD to stop! :)

The rest of the pictures below are of an area near Wiggins, Mississippi where my husband has family :)DSC_1725 edit


DSC_1738edit oh how I miss dirt roads … the perfect terrain for the Tacoma to go exploring!




I don’t remember if this was a creek or a river … but I thought it was scenic especially with the sand.DSC_1814edit


My husband’s grandma is quite the gardener … so many beautiful flowers :)

In motion…

I’m back after a long hiatus (due to no camera).  Went out to Dupont State Forest for a quick fix of too much work/city life and not enough quiet and embracing all that God has created in a natural quiet setting.  Below is a picture taken of the top of High Falls from the covered bridge. 


Below was a small pond of water that was next to the trail going to High Falls… it looked cool especially with the green/blue spot in the middle.DSC_4094

Cascade Lake Rd … to the right is a small falls.DSC_4077

this is the small falls eluded to earlier … its about 15 ft (ish) high … DSC_4072

this is also along Cascade Lake Rd…DSC_4081

High Falls … in normal flow you usually can stand on the big rock at the bottom right of the falls … DSC_4136

River leading to High Falls (taken from the covered bridge)…DSC_4111
