Horseback Riding in Eureka Springs, Arkansas

In the center of the Ozark Mountains in Northwest Arkansas is the wonderful and scenic city of Eureka Springs. There we went for a vacation in December when beautiful but dangerous snow was still on the hilly grounds. Eureka Springs is famous for things to do outdoors. That day we went on a guided horseback riding.

Strawberry Picking in Georgia

Strawberry Picking was our idea of how to spend one Sunday afternoon after church! This was at Elliot Farms in Lizella, Georgia, off of the Cherry Blossoms capital, the city of Macon on Highway 80. Aside from the fruit that people picked, they also sold fresh veggies.

Fishing on the Lake in Georgia

This was at a lake in central Georgia where we went to one Saturday afternoon fishing. It was so refreshing! We had fun, and so had the fishes, for none of them was caught 🙂 When we felt no movement and saw no prospect, we propped the poles on the bench which they so kindly put around the small lake. As usual, we ate, talked and laughed on our picnic mat while sharing memories together. As always, when you are one with nature, you feel a deep sense of peace. We went back home feeling like we caught a school 🙂

Hamilton Pool Preserve

One of the stops on our trip on thanksgiving weekend was to the Hamilton Pool Preserve in Dripping Springs, Texas, just about 23 miles north of Austin off Highway 71.

From the parking lot we hiked less than a mile through a kind of a rugged terrain, hilly and rocky, but there are trails and pathways that make it easy for tourists to walk, climb on and hike along. It was an amazing sight – the jade green pool, the 50-foot water falls, the huge dome that partly collapsed long time ago, and the white beach were awesome, and make a wonderful and unique photo opportunity. Stalactites growing from the ceiling are amazing too.

At this time, Continue reading “Hamilton Pool Preserve”

Fall Foliage Colors

One of the reasons I wanted to go to the Travis County Park was to see the fall foliage colors along our way. In Texas, at least along our route, and maybe because of this time of the year, there was not much however we still see some of the beautiful foliage. Still so refreshing and beautiful. Nature is. There are just so much beauty around for our eyes to see away from the everyday grind 🙂

Horseshoe Bend in Page, Arizona

img_2473

For just about two hours, we drove from Desert View in Grand Canyon to Page, Arizona off Highway 89 to see the Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River that I have heard/read about after my solo trip to the Grand Canyon two years prior. One of the tourists’ comments was it could easily be the most beautiful of sights. And I say indeed and it was even more beautiful than the Grand Canyon itself!

The Horseshoe Bend was so named because of the horse-shoe shape bend of the river. Perhaps Continue reading “Horseshoe Bend in Page, Arizona”
