Hike: Cumberland Trail: Rockcreek Trailhead


Red wildflower blooms.
At the very top ledge of the rocks.
And so near to November's end.
Here we wondered
- a lichen or moss -
with pretty red blooms.

How we wished we had taken a
magnifying glass with us on the hike.
One of several gorgeous waterfalls.
Promise of tomorrow.
A Rhododendron bud.
The countless towering rocks helped
us to put things in perspective.
Hemlocks lined the way on one ridge.
An American Holly (female).

Yeah Buddy. We were with you guys on this one. What a beautiful day! Those rocks were so magnificent. It was a joyous day to be out hiking in God's great wilderness.

OH it all looks so lovely!! I can't wait for this crazy cold blast (Florida in the 20's for crying out loud!!) to go away so we can get back outdoors.

I would brave the temps if not for fibromyalgia-- I and everyone with me would simply be miserable.
