Today we had so much fun with some of the greatest friends in the world!! We were invited to go hiking and Joe actually had a day off work!! (I know I couldn't believe it either). So Jamie invited us to go with her and Steven and Adam and Jill to Raven Cliffs. Yay! It was perfect weather and some much needed time outside...we were in!
This is at the bottom of the 2 1/2 mile trail (before we started)
Raven Cliffs is just above Cleavland Ga (about 40 minutes away) in the middle of the Mountains. It was such a nice drive through some beautiful mountain property. Anyway once we got there, we were excited to get going. The weather could not have been more perfect!
The views along the trail were spectacular! I wish I had more time to climb down in and get some more shots of the waterfalls all along the trail...but I did make everyone stop for a few shots (you know I would!)
It took us a good hour to get to the top and we walked at a pretty good pace. Because it was such a beautiful day we met a few people on the trail, but not so many that we didn't enjoy our walk to the top.
Adam and Steven stopped to look for bear caves :0) But they only succeded in scaring Jamie half to death.
Once we got to the top, we knew the hike was well worth it! Jamie and I stopped at the "top"
But the rest of the crew climbed to the VERY TOP of the cliffs...scary!!! (The little blue speck is Jill and the little white speck is Joe)
When the daredevils returned, we posed for a group picture at the top to prove we all made it :0).
We were sad to leave and go back to the bottom of the trail :0( Joe and Steven RAN the entire way down, Jill and Adam jogged, and Jamie and I took our time :0) The views were spectacular. We can't wait to go back again!!!
