Chimney Rock

June 27, 2010

I’ve been meaning to sit down and get these posted because personal photos are always on the back burner for me but since Justin and Ruca are taking a nap right now I wanted to do it.  On Memorial Day we spent the day at Chimney Rock.  It took us about 2-2 1/2 hours to get there but it was worth it despite the rainy weather.  There are going to be a lot of photos and I didn’t want to take the time to create a collage so sorry for the overload!  Some I took with my point and shoot and some are with my SLR so if you think the picture doesn’t look the best….that would be the lovely point and shoot.

Does it look like the Devil’s head to you?

I have to explain this next picture.  When I called customer service at Chimney Rock the recording said….”People say a picture is worth a thousand words…but only one word will come to your mind when you are at Exclamation Point…..WOW!”  I told Justin we had to get a picture of our “WOW” faces.  His is pretty good compared to my look that looks more like I’m frightened.  Because it was so foggy we couldn’t really see anything but I’m sure it would’ve been beautiful.

I was really excited to see the waterfall.  This waterfall is the second largest on the east coast I believe and it’s only short of being the tallest by 7 or 8 feet.  It was beautiful.  I didn’t want to leave.  The view and the sound was just relaxing.

Of course when we were walking back to our car the sun decided to show itself.
