Our Weekend in Pictures

So last weekend Randy’s dad came up to visit. We decided to go on one of our favorite hikes, Black Balsam Knob. We got up at 4 in the morning to see the sunrise. It was so early! But worth it!

The fog was so beautiful. The sun was such a dark orange color. These pictures just don’t do it justice! Black Balsam is our favorite because of the 360 degree view. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t quite corporate with us. But it was still nice and fun to be up there.

Still a pretty nice view, even though it was cloudy.

We were the only ones up there… maybe because it was 7 am… πŸ™‚

Very deep trail. Some parts were waist deep on me.

My favorite picture of Randy’s dad. I know, they look like twins! Pretty freaky, uh?

See how the weather was? Made for some pretty cool pictures though.

We ended our hike at Looking Glass Falls.

And to end our day… Octoberfest. *sigh* Perfect! πŸ™‚

Sunday I made egg sandwiches and lemon raspberry muffins for breakfast.

The muffins were delicious! They took a little bit longer than I thought it would to make; but they were great. I got the recipe here: http://bakingdom.com/2013/04/lemon-glazed-raspberry-lemon-muffins.html

Well, that was our weekend. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend as well.

  1. I love the view. I would love to take this hike when we come visit again. What fun Jama. You live in a beautiful place. I’m glad that your weekend went well.

    • Thanks! It is a great hike! It is covered in blueberry bushes, but the blueberries were not ready yet. They might be next weekend though. We could go blueberry picking?! πŸ˜‰

  2. Thank y’all for such a wonderful weekend. Scotty has always said that hiking can be an emotional thing, and now I understand why. Sunrises hold such promise.
