"look where we live..."

is something that is said by either Dan, or myself on almost a daily basis!

We feel very grateful that our leap-of-faith-move landed us in such a beautiful part of the world.

It was said, again, today.... as we walked up to these beautiful falls. This gorgeous sight is a mere 20-minute casual walk (probably a little over a mile away) off on a trail from a road we walk several times a week.

Ever since we've moved into our house people have asked if we've been to the falls, and the answer has always been no... until today when we set off to find it.

I grew up going to the Tetons in Wyoming and Glacier National Park in Montana. When we lived in Dallas, Dan and I would travel many times each year to Colorado and beyond just to get our mountain and nature fix.

That this wonderment is, basically, in our own backyard is sometimes hard to believe!


  1. So beautiful! Your photos are fabulous - you can almost hear the water cascading down the rocks! Leigh

  2. Be still my heart! I so long for the mountains, rivers and lakes of where my heart longs to be, in New England, I was born in NH, lived in VT and then upstate NY, now my feet are stuck in NJ but my heart lives way up North! You were smart to make your move! This year we will not be taking our bi-annual trip to VT and it makes me sad. I love your photos! Enjoy your lovely home and all of nature that decorates the outside with its splendor!

  3. Joan,
    It is gorgeous and it is great that you are so appreciative of it. Thanks for sharing the photos.

  4. I never get tired of seeing the beautiful part of the country that you call home. What a magnificent place!


  5. My fave is HOW much you respect and appreciate your new corner of the world!! Perfect...It...and you!

  6. Not fair! You need to move back to Dallas' flat landscape!!!!!! haha!!!

    that is just too beautiful, unreal - can not even imagine!

  7. Hi Joan: We are very fortunate to have the seasons and these lamdscapes. I love that you appreciate my home state, as you do. Cindy

  8. Absolutely beautiful! You can totally imagine that there aren't any homes for miles and miles around here. Oh, you truly are fortunate and I'll bet you'll be back to the falls often!

  9. Joan, Joan, Joan,

    Your're killing me!


  10. Great post! I love how you appreciate so much where you live! I think everyone should take a look around on a regular basis and see whatever beauty there is, wherever they are. We don't all have the wondrous natural beauty of a waterfall in our backyards, but there's always something!

  11. Oh my goodness, I think you live in paradise. I would love to walk to the falls every day if I lived nearby. Absolutely beautiful!

  12. Thank you all for your wonderful comments!
