|There goes Gretel, skipping off by herself.|
At the recommendation of a new friend, we visited Lieber State Park and the nearby Cataract Falls.
|How do I always get stuck with the baby hiking pack?|
|They love their covered bridges here.|
We got a few sprinkles and rumbles of thunder but otherwise stayed dry (and bug bite free--phew!).
|There goes Jack, pondering again.|
Of course, an observation deck is never enough for Jack, so he went down and got a closer look.
|The girls wondering where daddy went...|
|I could hear Evelyn's shrieks over the roar of the falls. I think she inherited my fear of heights...|
If that wasn't enough, Jack took Evelyn and Claire one by one (probably to see if Batman's cave was back there...)
Sadly, no Batcave.
Evelyn, who wasn't thrilled about the noise or the idea of getting wet without a swimming suit, managed a smile by the falls.
Before the girls gave up from exhaustion, we visited the lower falls too.
We walked along the shoreline and admired the pockmarked rocks and gently rolling river.
|Jack's attempt at modeling.|
It was a fun, fairly relaxing adventure. I love a good discovery!
