Wonders On Our Journey Home

'The world will never starve for want of wonders, but for want of wonder.” ― G.K. Chesterton

 Continuing our journey home-- On Monday, April 30, we were in Brevard, North Carolina. We spent the morning exploring the Pisgah National Forest area including Looking Glass Falls, shopping and eating.

The afternoon took us up through Highlands, TN and Nantahala National Forest.

This is just a small sampling of all the beautiful sights we saw along the way.


It is hard to get a handle on how big these falls were.  Wikipedia says they are 60 feet tall and I believe it but with no perspective it is hard to tell.

The tree growing out of the rocks on the right gives a little.


This is not the best of pictures but gives a little more perspective.




The mist (from the Falls) on the surrounding leaves made them glisten like diamonds--



A roaring creek just a short distance away.


The English Chapel--you can read about it here.









This is Titus.  He and his owner were taking a walk along a path beside the church, the creek and many other beautiful sights.


He was a wonderful photographic subject.
He posed first this way.......



and then that way............



and seemed right pleased with himself.......



the rhododendrons were in full bloom in the lower elevations--




Tennessee was not to be outdone by gorgeous North Carolina--





The Bridal Veil Falls were breathtaking--




and so much bigger than they look in these pictures--


Here is a YouTube video of the Falls--thank goodness it was not raining like this when we were there but it does give you more of a sense of their wonder.






Remember the world of wonders he has made,
      his miracles, and the verdicts he's rendered—
         O seed of Abraham, his servant,
         O child of Jacob, his chosen.*** 
from Psalm 105


May all your journeys bring you wonder,
One more day!
