Hiking with Betsy

Hiking with Betsy

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

Betsy planned a wonderful birthday celebration for me last weekend.  We went down to Fort Payne, Alabama, to do some hiking and visit some waterfalls.  We’ve been dan there before, but there was more water this time than on our earlier visits.

Hiking with Betsy is a great way to celebrate a birthday, or any day.  The collage above contains photos taken last weekend.  The picture on the upper left shows us at Little River Falls in the Little River Canyon National Preserve near Fort Payne.  Although I love hiking with Betsy, she does sometimes get carried away with the trails she picks as you can see by the picture on the upper right.

Betsy patiently waits while I’m playing around trying to get the ‘perfect’ shot, as the picture on the lower left shows.  (I love that beautiful smile!).  The middle picture shows us at Lost Falls in Desoto State Park.

The picture on the right shows the best part of hiking with Betsy.  This picture was taken along the West Fork of the Little River, also in Desoto State Park.

I’m already looking forward to our next hiking trip.
