We spent the weekend with friends and family at the Buffalo River and started off Friday evening with a hike, Lost Valley Trail.
This hike started off easy, but ended up with several steep steps that wore me out (and my knees). It was still worth the hike and we enjoyed exploring around the waterfall. My daring son ran ahead the whole time and by the time I made it up the steps, had crossed the water to what looked like a steep cliff and when I finally spotted him he was hanging from the side and seemed so far and tiny I was shocked.
This was taken with my phone and I have circled my son up on the cliff and my daughter making her way over there because they are almost impossible to see. They later told me the place where they were sitting was very flat and like a big room.
I had planned to try a couple more hikes but we just never found the time. The next day most of our group floated the river and the rest of us found a swimming hole to play in then took afternoon naps.
My two floaters loved canoeing. I think we will be going back.
We stayed in a huge cabin with 10 rooms and butterfly attracting flowers in the front that occupied our small girls. They spent quite a lot of time catching butterflies.
The views were always spectacular. The fog settled in the valley Friday evening and was still there Saturday morning. This was the view from our balcony.
We enjoyed evening walks up and down the road in front of our lodge where the sunsets were always worth the walk. We had a great weekend away. So glad to be included in this great group of people!
