Sunday afternoons are great for relaxing--reading the paper or a good book, watching Nascar or football, playing with siblings--but in the fall, when the cold winter is just around the corner, we seize the day and enjoy the nice weather while it lasts. We hadn't been to Gooseberry Falls State Park since the big flood back in June, so even though Barry was out of town, the kids and I drove down to do a little hiking.
There are signs throughout the park of the flooding--trees with the bark stripped off, debris in various places and even a large tree that had floated down the river.
For part of the hike, Jackson had the camera. He photographed Gooseberry Galls from different views:
and people and interesting things along the way:
We had a good time hiking and getting fresh air, seizing the day!
