Spring brings a lot of beauty into our world. I couldn't resist the temptation to get a close-up look at a couple of crocus blossoms.

Last month Betsy and I spent a couple of days in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. One of the days we drove up Greenbrier Road along the Little Pigeon River. I got this picture of the river at the intersection of Greenbrier Road with the road leading to Ramsey Cascade.

There's something almost magical about the way the picture of a rose can brighten a wintry day. Sheer Magic brightens my day whenever I see it.

I was going through my archives when I came across this picture of this stone bridge. This picture, scanned from a slide, was a drive by photo taken from a van as we traveled through the countryside of Bali back in 1987. There is something about this bridge that I find to be very appealing.

Betsy and I were able to see many beautiful and interesting sights as we hiked and traveled in Arkansas last week. One of the prettiest sights we saw was Falling Water Falls in the Ozark National Forest. We had to drive on a gravel Forest Service road to get there, but we both thought the trip was worth it.

Winter skies can be cloudy and gray, but there is the occasional perfect day with sunshine and brilliant blue skies. I captured this pretty sky in our front yard.

Betsy and I think February is a pretty good month for hiking to waterfalls. The weather is usually fairly mild, and the water flow is generally pretty good. We hiked to Fall Branch Falls in Georgia last February.

One of the waterfalls nearest our home is Northrup Falls. To get to the falls it is necessary to hike down into a cove, a pleasant hike on a sunny January day. The stream feeding the waterfall is not large, but there was a good flow when we visited a few years ago. If you look closely you can see Betsy on the trail that goes behind the falls.

We've visited Little River Falls near Fort Payne, Alabama, several times. This picture was taken in February, 2010, when we practically had the waterfall to ourselves.
