Betsy and I came back home to Monday afternoon to a very snowy world. Betsy looks very happy in the picture above, but I’m not sure if she’s happy we made it home or if she’s happy because of the snow.
We went down to Fort Payne, Alabama, for a weekend at the DeSoto Falls State Park lodge. Their weekend package included a special Valentine dinner on Sunday and breakfast Monday morning. It was a deal too good to pass up.
But, as you might suspect, the big attraction for us was the waterfalls. We’ve been to Fort Payne a couple of times before and really like the area. In addition to the park we also visited Little River Canyon, which is sometimes called the “Grand Canyon of the East”. In addition to a waterfall, the canyon also offers some spectacular views from the Canyon Rim Drive.
I had this trip planned for a several weeks, but last week they started talking about a major snowstorm over the weekend. Betsy was really torn as to whether or not we should go. She gets a little nervous about traveling in the snow, but felt that if we stayed here it wouldn’t snow and she would miss both the trip and the snow. If we went away she felt the Glade would get the kind of snow she really likes and she would miss it.
Betsy was right — we went and the Glade got the kind of snowfall she really likes. But we made it back safe and sound and the snow continued long enough after we got back that she could still enjoy it.
I’m almost afraid to ask which she liked most — the trip or the snow! What do you think?
Today I’m grateful for safe travel.
