This morning Jeff & I headed to Valdese, NC, to check out this park I just read about on the internet. When we got there the gates were locked, but there were other people parked on the shoulder of the road and walking around the gates, so we just joined them. They left soon after we arrived, though, and we really had the entire park to ourselves. I got this picture standing in the middle of the creek, looking down toward the falls.
And this one after we’d walked down below the falls, next to the old grist mill. It really was a beautiful park. I’m so glad we decided to go.
