My husband is blessed to have a couple of extra days off ~ and so we are enjoying a nice long weekend! We took a day trip to a lovely spot ~ the falls! The skies were sunny and it was so beautiful ~ but a little on the chilly side!
We hiked down to the lower observation to get a different view. The trail descended quickly through the woods and it was a nice hike down. The views from there were wonderful as well. We had never been to this part of the park before.
The hike back up was really quite the hike!! The quick descent made for a very steep incline going back! We were so glad to reach the top again!
He headed into the town and enjoyed our picnic lunch there. It is a lovely little place!
We strolled through the downtown, browsing in some of the shops. The hardware and variety store had a little bit of everything and it was jam packed with stuff! We stopped in the candy store and picked out some salt water taffy. The candy store was in with a small cafe and soda fountain. The stools at the counter made it so old-fashioned looking!
Then we went to the train station and purchased tickets to take the train on a scenic ride through the countryside to another nearby town and then back past the falls.
This is a picture of the river below the falls that I took while we were on the train!
We went back to the falls and met our daughter and son-in-law after Seth got off work, and then we visited a farm. We enjoyed dinner with them at their home afterward so it made for a nice and complete day!
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!
