another adventure in the woods we will go
For our sixth anniversary we made a day trip and drove north to Hanging Rock State Park in North Carolina. One would have to assume that there was some sort of hanging rock at this state park, otherwise the name of the park would be moot. one can only think of a friends episode using the word moot. The first trail we decided to hike was hanging rock as we assumed that would be one of the most popular. assumed correct. Joe insisted on sitting on the edge and for me I was going to stay put where I wasn't hanging half my body leaning towards death. I'm not afraid of heights, however I'm still not comfortable without having some sort of 'railing' to hold me back from tumbling off the edge of a mountain. just sayin' Our next stop was the upper falls and then a quick picnic lunch at the lake and then to the lower falls. We spent a little more time at the lower falls since you could get in the water and people watch.
All in all we had a great day adventure out into the wilderness and look forward to our week long anniversary trip later this year.
