Crabtree Falls

My birthday was last week. South Carolina Daughter came up from SC with her family, and we met at Virginia Daughter's home for the weekend. There was yummy food, and cheese cake, and an afternoon of crafting - knitting, spinning, jewelrymaking. Virginia Grandson wasn't there, he was time traveling at the Pennsic Wars, but the rest of us had fun. Sunday's the blog part, though - we went hiking at Crabtree Falls, the highest vertical-drop cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River.

We got there just as it started to rain. This was a good thing, as it had been rather unpleasantly hot and humid, and that fixed it. The thunder stayed far off in the distance, and we climbed the trail anyway. It was beautiful.

See the skull?

Afterwards, we went to a foot bridge nearby and South Carolina Grandson got to wash the mud off. Topped off the day with a good meal in Waynesboro.

    It's not often I sit in my summer spot and wish I were somewhere south of here, but that did it! It is beautiful there; I miss it sometimes. Glad you had a good b'day.
