We woke up Monday morning to overcast skies and wondered if our plans to hike to various waterfalls was a good idea. Should we opt for a local museum in case it rained? Or maybe an apple or pumpkin farm so we wouldn't be stranded in the woods if it began to pour? Nope. We came to hike, to see the fall colors, and to be outside. Onward and upward!
Our first hike - and I use the word hike loosely since we were with three kids - led us to Hooker Falls.
Thank you, Grady Lee, for your bravery and politely asking a nearby woman to take our family picture. She did a fairly good job and you get all the credit!
I mentioned earlier that the skies were overcast and threatened rain. The fantastic experience for my boys was that, no sooner did we load up into the car and hit reverse, and the rain started to pour. We made it back just in time. It was the perfect moment to stop the car, fold our hands, and thank Jesus for holding off the rain so we could enjoy a wonderful day.
