Making the time...

This past week Brian and I decided to break up the work grind with a dose of nature and a hike.  There is a mountain with a beautiful trail very close to our house. So, off we went...

This is the bridge that greets you at the beginning. 

It really is a very scenic trail.

Now, I didn't get any pictures of all the rocks we tripped over or the trees that I had to hang on to to keep from sliding down the side of the mountain when I was gasping for air trying to keep up with Brian.  Apparently, we chose the shorter but steeper trail and the switchbacks were a killer.  It was a challenge but in the end it was totally worth it.

Look at the view!

You can see Atlanta from the top and a nearby lake.

It was so peaceful & quiet with perfect weather.  We really enjoyed it because rarely do things go this right for us when we try to do something outdoors.

We sat on this bench a good while and talked about everything & nothing.

Sweaty, happy people.

We left our mark..

God is good.

We slept well that night.  I hope you take time to enjoy something simple this week.
