Chimney Rock

The girls were so excited to finally get to go to Chimney Rock! It was like we were on top of the world here :) When Jesus returns, that will be a great place to watch from :)

Lucy perched high atop a mountain!

I was a little nervous while we were here, I kept imagining the kids rolling down the mountain, falling off rocks or cliffs, or some other horrible thing happening. Thank God we had no incident while there, but I sure did pray the whole time!

This was a little cave like alcove that was cool.

This trail led to this waterfall which was super cool! It was worth the hike :) It wasn't super hot when we were there, so we didn't go diving into the water, but on a hot day I bet this is the place to be!!

About two weeks after our visit a little 2 year old boy was killed at Chimney Rock by falling off a bridge/cliff on a different trail then we were on. I pray for that family to have comfort and be able to piece together their lives. It was a horrible tragedy and I am sure we will be going back, but I am betting we will see more gaurd rails and things in place to prevent such a tragedy from happening again! God will surely bring good from that horrific event.
