we loaded up the truck and packed a lunch. it was such a pretty drive out to the state park. when we arrived, we found a shaded area to set up our camp chairs and eat our picnic lunch. (thanks, mom, for sending us home with leftovers from our 4th of july picnic. it made the perfect lunch!)
after lunch, we hiked the waterfalls for over 3 hours. we sure put a lot of miles on our hiking boots! going into this, i guess i envisioned a leisurely trail alongside waterfalls. i had no idea that we would literally be hiking up and down the sides of the falls. the trail started off easy and then got nuts. it was crazy and quite the workout!
the scenery was absolutely beautiful. i kept saying that it was so pretty that it actually looked fake, like we were walking through a movie set or something.
here are some pictures from our adventure . . .
