Serenity Falls

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

Betsy usually arranges a short get-away for my birthday. Three years ago she got us into a neat little cabin overlooking Serenity Falls.  This is a pretty little waterfall in the Smoky Mountains near Cosby, Tennessee.

Betsy has a new photo blog, which I'm sure you will enjoy.  You can find it by clicking HERE.
