When the weather forecast predicted 80 degrees last Thursday, I knew we had to get out of the house. Since we celebrated the beginning of our CC school year with a hike at McDowell Creek Falls, it seemed fitting to celebrate the end as well.
We hiked and hiked and hiked until our legs felt like jelly.
We got our toes wet.
We explored the water falls.
We climbed to the top of the waterfall above later in the afternoon (an arduous path of steep stone stairs) and the waterfall below (an arduous path of wooden stairs).
We also enjoyed the smaller falls.
This next photo was taken above the 3-tiered waterfall.
I think we’ll make this a summer habit.
