Donut Falls

It is amazing what you can think about when you are at work by yourself for basically 3 whole months.  While I was picking weeds on Monday, I thought to myself..."self why don't we go on a hike after work"  dang that was such a great idea.  That's just what I did.  My roommate Vanda came with me and the weather was just beautiful.  We left our house at about 4 and got up to the trailhead called "Mill D", where we dropped off the car and started on our adventure.  Thankfully at the trailhead there was a bathroom so we both partook of its services and off we went.  The sun was hot but the trees shaded most of the trail and the animals were all out enjoying the sunshine as well. Here are some of the animals we were able to enjoy.
This deer was in the middle of the trail and then moved in to the woods and watched us like we couldn't see each other.  Then as soon as we started walking away it ran in the opposite direction down the trail.
We saw a lot of squirrels just looking for food on the trail.
 This little chipmunk was squeaking at us until we took pictures of it.  Cute little thing.
 Another squirrel waiting to see where we were going to go
The little purple flower has a bumble bee just pollenating his little heart out!

 Two more squirrels just eating and playing around

Pretty little Moth/Butterfly thing


 There were also a lot of pretty flowers to enjoy as well.
The trees were also fun to look at.



Isn't that just a beautiful view!

But the best and my most favorite part of the whole hike was when we thought we were lost and were walking down by the water as it was rushing down the mountain.


What a great way to witness some of God's greatest creations!!!

I was going to say, "Take me with you next time!" but then I remembered I live too far away. It looks like a dream come true. What a great idea. Good job you!
