Betsy at Northrup Falls



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I enjoy hiking in the winter, although that is not always the ideal time to see waterfalls at their best. But hiking in January is usually more pleasant than hiking in the heat of August. This picture was taken during a January hike to Northrup Falls, which is only about 20 miles from our home in Fairfield Glade. Betsy and I were on opposites of the waterfall when I snapped this picture.

What a cool photo! Almost looks like she would have gotten wet. Love the streaking water.

Hey George, that's a pretty neat shot of Betsy behind the waterfall. What a chilly winter shower that would be.
Be well n happy,

This is a really cute photo of Betsy...but then again, she is always cute. The waterfall looks really cold!

I agree that winter hikes can often be a lot more fun than those taken during the heat of summer.

That is an amazing shot.

This is a very cool picture with the water coming down in front of her. It looks so dangerously slippery, too, I see why she would need two walking sticks!

It's a beautiful place no?

That is my favorite falls of all. Thanks for bringing the wonders of falls to us. I love the header. It gave me a hint that snow is already in your yard.

The waterfall might have formed a beautiful water curtain during spring time.

at first i thought it was raining...neat picture....i like hiking in the winter over summer because i am afraid of snakes! we still go out in the summer, but i'm constantly on the lookout! although now i'm kind of worried when we go out that we'll bump into some bears again...ha, i'm a big scaredy cat!

Marie said...

How nice to get out in the woods and hike! Love the photos that you share of the two of you having such a great time.

Sandy said...

This shot makes me miss the mountains . I lived not far from the Poconos in Pa. Loved walking the trails. (o:

Looks like a pretty place. If you are dressed warmly, hiking in the cold certainly beats hiking in the heat. I love your "wintry" header photo. Mickie ;)
