Scenic Sunday # 35

The view from 'our' cabin on Mt. Nebo. March 10, 2009.

This is my post for the weekly meme Scenic Sunday.  To see more Scenic Sunday pictures, or to join the fun and post your own pictures, click HERE.

Last week I showed a picture of ‘our’ cabin on Mt. Nebo in Arkansas.  We went back there to celebrate my birthday and to do some hiking.

For the first time since we’ve started going to Mt. Nebo, the weather didn’t really cooperate.  It was over 80° and sunny on the day we arrived, but then the clouds, rain and ice moved in.

Although we didn’t get to do as much hiking and waterfalling as we had planned, we still had a wonderful time.  We did see four new waterfalls and saw nine all together.  And the falls we had seen before had much more water this time.

The picture above, which can be enlarged,  is the view from the back of ‘our’ cabin.  Actually I was on the Rim Trail behind (and slightly below) the cabin when I took this picture.  Even though it was a gray cloudy day, the view of the valley and the mountains beyond is still fantastic.

And, yes, in spite of our weather woes, we will be going back!

    Welcome back George.

    These kinds of open landscapes always appeal to me especially with the patchwork of fields in the background. Had it been very sunny the contrasts might have been too sharp. This way it’s good.

    Pity about the wheather but sounds as if you enjoyed your little holiday anyway.
