Drift Creek Falls–June 2011

We’ve been wanting to hike down to Drift Creek Falls ever since we heard that the wall under the falls had collapsed – Here is a look at our afternoon.

You zig zag hike down a mile and a half to a long suspension bridge. Here’s Jon dropping a rock off of the bridge.

    Saw your comment at Harmony Art Mom. What high school I got to do with my son was a pleasure–they can do so much more at that age and it really, in the best possible way, builds their self-esteem to do so. Don’t worry if your child doesn’t do what “everyone” does–give him/her time to just explore with no pressure to produce a piece of writing about it or discuss it. Give them time to find passions. They may not be YOUR passions, but they will carry them on into adult life. I see this so clearly with my son–his passion [DEFINITELY not mine! Rap music] has led him to learn all he can about poetry, to memorize Bible verse [something I never thought would happen], explore all types of music [ditto] and sound effects, to learn a lot about recording and recording technology. It amazes me how he’s grown thru his passions.

    I’ll be praying for you when you start your year! Sit back and enjoy it–all of it, even the “ugly” parts! It will go by in a blink!

    you are KILLIN me!! is it strange that I can actually smell the forest in those pictures? You are making me want to get in the truck right now and drive over!

    The falls are beautifully rugged now, how interesting the landscape will be when it is covered over with new moss and lichen.

    Thanks for sharing!
