Anniversary Getaway

Well we had a great time this last weekend. I know I said I would update on Sunday and I totally dropped the ball on that one. It took me five days to get myself back together and start blogging again. So anyway, this picture was taken in front of Hickory Nut Falls in Chimney Rock Park. This waterfall is 404' tall. You can't really see that from this photo.
Here we are at the bottom of Hickory Nut Falls. Chimney Rock was a lot of fun to visit. They had a lot of good walking trails and moderate hiking trails.

This is a view of Chimney Rock. The park has an elevator that will take you all the way to the top so you don't have to walk up a million stairs. Although think of the wonders it could do for your glutes!
Okay so we didn't take the stairs up to the top, but we seriously thought about it for, two seconds.
After we went to Chimney Rock we went to Pearson's Falls in Tryon, NC. It was a short 1/4 mile hike to get the the falls. It was really beautiful. This fall was 90' tall.

Here is a picture Walter took of the falls. He did a panoramic type picture but went up and down. He was having a lot of fun with our new camera. It was so nice to get away for a couple of days and not have to worry about the kids. Thanks Kenzie!
