Crabtree Falls in North Carolina

Today we drove on the Blueridge Parkway, and got out to hike to Crabtree Falls.
 This was Aric's first waterfall, which was really special.  I think he was impressed.  Nathan and I were too!
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir
The poetry of the earth is never dead.  ~John Keats
The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.  ~Author Unknown
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.  ~Albert Einstein

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.  ~e.e. cummings

Beautiful Krystal. Hope I can add these waterfalls to my "collection" one of these days!

Happy and safe travels!
