If you've followed this blog for any length of time you know how much Betsy and I enjoy Mt. Nebo in Arkansas and the sunsets we see from 'our' cabin. But the sunrises are also pretty special. We have to get up early enough to get to Sunrise Point, but as this photo shows, it is well worth the effort.

Beautiful blue skies have been in short supply in the Glade this year. It seems as if Old Man Winter just wants to keep sticking around. I went to my archives to remember what March blue skies look like. This picture was taken three years ago.

Mt. Nebo Falls is a pretty little waterfall near the top of Mt. Nebo in Arkansas. It requires a short, steep hike to get to the base of the falls, but we think it is worth it.

One of the nice things about March on the Plateau is that daffodils are making their appearance and announcing that Spring is here. This beauty is called Mon Cherie and I think it looks beautiful after a light Spring shower.

The dam and bridge at Cumberland Mountain State Park near Crossville, Tennessee, is the largest masonry project built by the Civilian Conservation Corp. The seven-arch bridge carries the road over the dam.

Betsy 'kidnapped' me last Friday and we headed to Fort Payne, Alabama. Before we checked into our hotel we visited Little River Canyon National Preserve a few miles outside the town.
We first stopped at Little River Falls. We had been there a few years ago, but this time we found a good water flow and a new boardwalk and observation platform. I got this photo from the new observation deck.

I was going through my archives a few days ago and I came across this photo taken during our trip to the Grand Canyon in June, 2011. This photo was taken near the Bright Angel trailhead on the edge of the Grand Canyon Village. I was hiking along the Rim Trail instead of going down into the canyon, but I would sure like to go back and hike down into the canyon.

We have Sempervivum -- Hens and Chicks -- growing in several places around our yard. Sempervivum requires little care and looks good throughout the year. We have several different varieties with different forms and colors, but we think they all look beautiful.

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.

This picture shows one of the reasons we keep going back to Mt. Nebo in Arkansas. I captured the setting sun over the mountains to the west from the back porch of 'our' cabin. I'm pretty sure we'll be going back again.

Daffodils are a good sign that Spring is definitely on the way. This daffodil, Wild Carnival, brightens the flower bed on the side of the house. This picture is from my archives.

Crooked Creek Falls is one of the waterfalls in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas that Betsy and I visited in 2010 on our way to Mount Nebo. We had to take Forest Service roads into the mountains to find this waterfall, but when we got there we had it to ourselves. Life doesn't get much better than that.
