Hiking Wilson Creek-Harper Falls

This past Wednesday was another of our monthly hiking days. We hiked Wilson Creek-Harper Falls. Even though I am not in the "best" physical shape, LOL, I still love these hikes. We hike mostly easy-moderate trails. My goal is the easier ones. And this was the third of our hikes and it was beautiful. A wonderful hike in Pisgah National Forest before we reached the waterfall that was our destination. It provides a time of connection with my boys as well as the physical benefit to my body. While hiking the boys, especially Phillip, will go from hiking and talking/exploring with their friends to holding hands and hiking/chatting with me. So nice to be able to share these moments of peace and wonder with them. And of course we live in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains so we have all the hiking we can possibly want, and we meet some really interesting people along the way.

We had a nice picnic at the conclusion of the hike and headed home to share the details with dad/dh.
For the next couple of months we are moving a little bit south, as it is getting colder here. But for now we are enjoying the beautiful fall scenery. Next month the leaves should be at there peak. How awesome is that to be able to watch the changing of seasons.
