Chasing Waterfalls Isn’t Always Dangerous
Today I thought I’d share a little music and a photo gallery from my most recent weekend escapades. Over the weekend, KP (the hubby) and I took a day trip to see some waterfalls in the North Georgia Mountains.
North Georgia is known for beautiful waterfalls, and we were lucky enough to see four of them–Bad Branch Falls (two waterfalls for the price of one), Minnehaha Falls (love the name, because it seems like laughter) and Toccoa Falls.
While we were in the mountains, I thought about the song ‘Waterfalls’ by TLC, released in 1994. I loved listening to the song back then, although they played it absolutely to death on the radio for months, it seemed. I grew tired of it for awhile, but enough time has passed that I can now enjoy it and remember what a great song it is.
Do you remember this song? (If not, you’re probably too young to be reading this blog).
If you listen to the lyrics, they are actually short-short stories about a few unfortunate individuals who meet disaster, because they deviate from the right path and choose one that is completely self-destructive–”chasing waterfalls” is the metaphor used for the familiar premise.
Fortunately, in my area of the world it’s actually fun and safe to chase waterfalls, provided you don’t do something stupid, like tubing over a waterfall or down an unfamiliar river. If you plan your hike and have proper GPS coordinates, as we did, the only risk you face is experiencing a little of nature’s artwork and maybe getting some nice shots with your camera.
Here is a little photo gallery I put together from our weekend adventures. Make sure to click on an image to see the gallery in it’s full glory. It’s MUCH better when you do…
That’s all I have for Wildcard Wednesday, and admittedly, I almost blew Project 365 (or 366, with leap year), but I’m still in five hours before Thursday. Whew! I’ll see you tomorrow with something thoughtful.
