The drive up the mountain was the foggiest fog I've ever seen. When we got to the lodge (close to the top) Andrew said, "Hey mom, we are on top of the clouds." The pictures below are actually looking down in the valley below the mountain, but you'll notice all you can see are clouds.
We hiked to this waterfall and it did not disappoint. I would take this hike every day if I could.
I took this of Clayton as he was trying to walk around the basin of the waterfall. See him? Isn't he tiny? Yes, it was huge.
Our friend wanted this picture taken so it would look like he was hanging from the cliff. I think he nailed it. We probably should have gone over facial expressions when climbing a cliff. I don't think you would be smiling. Or at least I wouldn't be smiling...maybe that's just me.
Andrew with stick #2. He loves a stick.
Reluctantly we loaded up and headed out Saturday morning.
Here's the after laundry. It was worth it.
We really did have a blast! If I had it to do over again we would spend a little more time and stay a little closer to Petit Jean State Park, but the cabin in Magazine was perfect for this trip. It really was one of my favorite vacations that we've taken together. Monday morning Andrew and I were headed to East Memphis and I said "Andrew, I wish we were hiking today." He responded, "I wish I was in the hot tub." Yep, it was a good vacation. I love these guys and the time we spend together.
