Sweetest Day

As you can see, I received an awesomely beautiful bouquet of flowers for sweetest day...Thanks Jack! Then we (really me) decided it would be wonderful to go to Mohican State Park and hike back to Lyon Falls to see if we could find where Jordan, Jono, Amy and Billy had carved their names some 12 or more years ago. So we hit the trail on this most beautiful fall afternoon.
Yes, here is Jack hitting the old trail now!
Of course we had to traverse the covered bridge and stop for a kodak moment...Actually, we could have skipped me on the bridge.
After making it to the falls we found a Billy and an Amy carved in stone, but no Jordan or Jono. The stone is sandstone, very soft and I'm not really sure these were carved by our Amy and Billy, but it did bring back neat memories of that day long ago when I was younger and so were they!

Lyon falls is really pretty and the rocks are big...can you see Jack down there? That gives a pretty good idea of the size of this place.
Here, if you look close, you can see a dribble of the falls. Sort of lame for an actual "waterfall", but still very pretty.

The river looked so nice with all the leaves changing and the air was crisp and the sky blue, so truly it was a sweet day!
