We saw 2 waterfalls on our 2nd hike for 2018

Between my shoulder, our cats and hubbies schedule we sure haven’t done much hiking this year. I fetched the bear spray from my pristine camera backpack and we took off for our make up anniversary outing we postponed.

We changed the place to see and decided on Raven Cliff Falls in SC. Raven Cluff Falls is on Matthews Creek in Ceasars Head Park. It is the tallest waterfall in South Carolina, somewhere between 320 and 400 feet, depending on what you read and where they measured as it looks like the start of it could be hard to determine. Regardless of the exact size, it was a site to see. Continue reading

Frozen bubbles, frozen waterfalls, frozen nose and frozen fingers.

Sometime around fall, a friend posted a photo of a frozen soap bubble and I immediately added it to my “want-to-shoot list” of stuff I wanted to try. (Thanks Kathi).

Merry Christmas from the Maxwells

Greatest gift

Merry Christmas friends and family!

I was asked recently if I was religious. I wasn’t sure how to answer other than we are Christians who believe Christianity is different than all other religions because Christ comes to you instead of you working your way or being “good enough”. He loves us all. Period.  We believe in God the Father, Jesus His Son and the Holy Spirit, faith, prayer, grace, and salvation. We believe Jesus died for our sin and if we accept this gift of Jesus in our place, paying our sin debt, that we don’t deserve, or could have in any way earned and accept Jesus as our Savior that we can have eternal life in Heaven.

I don’t really see how anyone could look at this awesome beautiful intricate world and not see something bigger than themselves. In this spirit and because we pray every person, all family, and every friend also accept His gift, we wish you all a blessed Christmas and pray you know the real reason for the season.

Choooo Choooo all aboard

We saw a hot air balloon from the interstate. I think that’s the second or third time in that area. I would do that sometime but I did have a friend who had to make an emergency landing on Hwy 26.

The day started with a wrong turn close to our first stop based on directions that were a little off. We were following two sets of directions to Alarka Falls. One from a 2008 post and one from a website I visit often. We were trying to get to the Falls to see the waterfall while we were over at Bryson City. When we did find it we were pushed for time if we wanted to eat more than granola bars before the train ride.
