We just came back from a four-day weekend in the mountains. It was so relaxing but went so fast! We started out in the morning in exactly the right place at the right time.
Seriously, we were looking forward to spending a relaxing time in the mountains
and that excitement grew with each mountain we would pass.
After traveling a couple of hours we finally reached our destination. The area had been hit hard in 2011 when we also got hit with Tropical Storm Lee. It totally washed away roads and bridges so this was the first year back since then. It was exciting to see what had changed…. and what was still the same.
But the the flowers and the butterflies were absolutely beautiful
and the creek sang to us as we reacquainted ourselves to our surroundings.
We did see a fair amount of snakes this weekend…..
And a humming bird provided hours of entertainment!
There was also campfires, games and splashing in the creek…
Rose Valley Lake….
It was a wonderful weekend!
