Whimsical Wednesday: An Autumn Walk in the Woods

Why don't you join me on this whimsical wednesday for a walk in the woods! This past weekend my parents came to visit, and on Sunday we went for a drive in the smokies, and a short hike. The hike in the woods is my inspiration for this post. There was a lovely creek, ferns, moss, mushrooms, fall colors, a blue blue sky, a waterfall, majestic trees, crisp cool air, and a hint of wood smoke coming from the near by campground. The hike was 2 miles to the waterfall, and 2 miles back, but I must say it wasn't really about the destination for me(although I do love waterfalls), it was more about the walk itself, and the company. The name of the waterfall was Mouse Creek Falls. Isn't that just so cute?! My mom and I took tons of pictures! We're what you might call shutterbugs. So let's start off on our drive, and hike in the smokies. Joining us will be my dad, my mom, my husband, and a few random people along the way. Would you have liked to join us? Leave me a comment, and let me know!

A cute little barber shop in a small town on the way.

Me, all bundled up because we had the top on the convertable down. They said I looked like a cute old lady, but I prefer to say I looked like a movie star...

~The Hike. A few of the sights along the way.~

Me on the trail.

Did I mention there were cute trees with holes to pose in? I didn't? Well there were! My mom reminds me of Alice from Alice in Wonderland in this picture! So cute!

My husband, Brian, on the trail.

Some cute, tiny plants along the way.

A bright leaf on some moss.

A random cute couple sharing a small snack along the way.

A swimming hole along the way. Just look at those lovely deep blues, and greens. This would have been very tempting on a hot summer day.
