Happy Anniversary: Harper Creek Falls Hike

Our anniversary is not today, it was actually August 21.  But with such a busy week at the beach last week, I did not even open my laptop.  I am just getting to pictures and blogging today.

This year Jackson and I decided not to do the traditional, dinner out to eat, for our anniversary.  Instead we decided to go for a hike.  And what a beautiful day for a hike.  We have been married 22 years.  It was a wonderful hike, we drove along Wilson creek and on up to the trail head.  Very few people out on the trail on that day, a few pack in campers but that was it.  For most of the time we were alone on the trail.  It is around 5 miles round trip, in and out to the Harper Creek Waterfall.  Part of the hike is on the Mountain to Sea Trail.  We hiked in and took the upper trail and ended up way up above the falls.  So we then back tracked a bit to the fork and took the lower trail, which was still above the falls a bit, but with a wonderful view.  We have decided that at some point we need to pack in and spend some time here along the creek, just that beautiful.  Here are a couple of pictures to mark the day:

And this last picture is for my brother, Jeff.  Just to let you know that I think about you all the time and someday we will have to go on a hike together!
