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)…

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
