Today I’m going to be taking you to a place that should be known all over the world for it’s beauty. Wait, you’re asking me where that is? Well, my amigo, it ’tis Look Out Mountain. My family and I went on a delightful trip, and I brought my trusty camera along. Today I shall bring you along with me and relive my adventures.
In other words, today you shall have to marvel at my photography and grin as I relate adventures.
When we first arrived at the cabin where we stayed, I decided to go exploring. This was the only time I went trailblazing, because I am not fond of ticks or poison ivy. They had this lovely bench overlooking the view, and I spent much of my time writing, reading, and thinking here.
I scrambled down this area that I was terribly afraid I would fall and roll down, and ended up coming to this very large rock. The rock had an even better view than the bench, and so I took a few pictures.
Also, I could not refrain from taking a picture of my trusty boots. I don’t know where I would be today without them. 😂 Unfortunately, cowboy boots don’t have any traction…So yeah. But I like them anyway.
It had rained the day before, and this moss was so lush. In fact, I sat on it, and became rather wet. 😐 But it was pretty, and fun to run my hand over it.
I found this spider, and when I saw the sunshine hitting it’s web, I was pulling out my camera as fast as I could. It took a few tries, and I’m still not half happy with this little fella, but it is what it is.
I’ve been trying to work on my photography skills, so I made my brother sit for me. This was before my personality affected him.
For some reason I do this to people. *shakes head* Anyway, he was pretty good for a few minutes. Maybe I should learn not to crack jokes when I’m taking pictures. 😉
So then I got my little sister to pose for me. She’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen, so of course, it’s only natural that I make her pose for me. She did so many cute things, like falling into the flowers, dancing, and just saying the sweetest things.
Her eyes kill me every time. Maybe I’m a bit biased, but still. ❤ ❤ ❤
And then Star was just sitting there next to me, trying to catch up on all the sleep I’ve deprived her of. 😂 She’s not as high-energy as her owner. Which is probably good for me, since I sometimes forget about her…
❤ ❤ ❤
There were so many little yellow flowers and daisies blooming, which makes me so happy. I honestly prefer weeds to orchids and roses. The idea of picking them and hanging out with my youngest two sisters is what I call happiness.
And we managed to take a family picture! With most people smiling…Star makes me laugh ever time. Her face seems to scream, “HELP ME!” 😂
I can never sleep long when I’m away from home. It isn’t until eleven that I actually drift off, and I’m up by six, wondering where I am. So? Take pictures of the sunrise, right? I was so sleepy (not a morning person, folks!) that I lost my lens cover. Thankfully, we found it in the bushes later that day.
The haze, y’all. 😍
The color of this picture makes me what to hold my breath. The sun was just coming over the ridge, and ahhhhhhh!! The beauty!
Next we went to Look Out national park or something, where the mountain overlooks Chattanooga, and ahhhhhh! AGAIN, THE BEAUTY!
The airplanes ruin some of the best photographs ever.
Like usual at Civil War battle fields, they had a lot of model cannons. They’re so teeny, honestly. (Well, says the person that has to acknowledge to everyone that she’s tall.)
The Tennessee River is beautiful, and all the trees, and AHHHHHHHH! *my brain can’t handle it* I was literally gasping every time I turned around. Rose kept telling me to calm down. 😂
This was before I read a sign that said you aren’t supposed to climb on the rocks. I made Rose climb up so I could take her picture. 😉
I’m so proud of this picture! Honestly, everyone is AMAZING.
Here’s the picture Rose took of me on the same rock. 😉
We passed this kind of Sassafras or something, and it smelled out of this word, honestly. And so I had to take a picture. 😉
I love dandelions. I picked so many and cast so many wishes. 😉 And I think all of them were more than fulfilled.
I love the color of the cannon. ❤
The dogwoods were blooming, and the lighting made me hyperventilate. Not really, but I was so close. I think I jumped up and down. Without Rose next to me, I would be in trouble. She’s always like, “Calm down.” And I’m like, “BUT LOOK AT THE FLOWERS! THE LIGHTING! AHH!”
And then the next day we went on a long walk in the early morning, so I could get the morning light.
I’ll be honest. I feel 100% in love with this mountain, and with everything around it.
Like I said, I love weeds.
There’s something that makes me so happy with old bird houses and blue skies.
And then our trip was over. The beauty seemed a world away, but I had some of it in my camera, and the rest of it went into my heart.
I hope you enjoyed this photo dump. Comment below if you want me to do a birthday haul or not. I’m undecided.
EDIT: I forgot to put this in here before. Heheh, Anyway, I have two good friends that have their birthdays coming up, and they’re trying to reach 100 subscribers before then. First, we have Garrett, who blogs at Sovereign Swag. (AH, my favorite Christian blog at the moment!) And next we have Noah, who blog at in Kyoto, which is so interesting. So go follow this two!
