a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Same Day Out..

We lucked onto a new viewing area with parking and winding trails.  This is right up my alley but sadly Hubby can't climb nor walk a lot.
Our view from the first look off was spectacular but then I spotted a trail.  Hubby waited for me to explore.
First I saw this...okay, but how high can it be, really.
After quite a steep hike I saw another sign.
I can't see the top.
I can't see the bottom.
And yes, that is a person falling off a cliff on the sign!
At the summit even the trees were falling over the bluff.
The view was worth the hike even in ninety plus temps.
Right then left Norfork River as far as I could see.
An island and a little white water was way down the river.
I saw rocks and wild flowers.  The descent was very steep.  I had to use my brakes a lot. I saw a new view and I was loving the planet, a wonderful creation.  I was thankful when I reached the bottom.  I acted tough as if the height did not bother me.  I was telling Hubby how beautiful the view was.  He saw me coming and had a drink and a air conditioned truck waiting for me.

Gotta love a man that encourages you to have an adventure even if he no longer can.  I think I will keep him.

That is an amazing view! The sign is a little humorous though.

How lovely and I wish I was there to go with you on that hike. It looks fantastic. I am so glad you have a buddy to go do things with and then wait for you in the air conditioning. I bet it sure felt nice when you got in.

Susan Kane said...

What a hike indeed! The view must have been tremendous. Glad your husband found someone to while away the time, in A/C.

So sweet of him to wait for you. Hope he got in a nice nap. The Elkhorn river goes through our Norfolk.

Gorgeous views, Gail. I'm glad you felt like going, too.
I would have waited with your hubby. ;-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

The view is gorgeous. And he knew you had a camera and would be able to share it with him I tend to wilt in 90┬║, so I might have gone, but would have been whining a lot.

Susan Anderson said...

Absolutely beautiful! And yes, you should keep him...
