Soco Falls, Cherokee Nation, North Carolina, August 2015
Just off of Highway 19 on the Cherokee Nation, near Cherokee, North Carolina is the beautiful Soco Falls. Soco Falls is a double waterfall that is worth the short trail walk of five minutes or less to view.

The larger waterfall may be viewed from a deck platform that is well-maintained. The lower waterfall involves a steeper and more slippery trail walk that is easy for a rugged hiker, though I do not recommend it for novices.
When visiting the Cherokee Nation and/or Cherokee, North Carolina, Soco Falls is a definite attraction to view for its refreshing and re-energizing view of nature’s beauty.
Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, moms-to-be, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, and anyone who serves in this blessed maternal role! Please enjoy this photo of a beautiful orange rose that I snapped yesterday in my neighborhood! 🙂
Frosty Oak Leaf, Lake Lanier, Gainesville, Georgia, December 14, 2014
My son and I enjoyed viewing this frosty oak leaf on the shore of Lake Lanier in Gainesville, Georgia while camping last weekend. The tiny icicles that formed on the bottoms of the stones were pretty neat, too! Overnighting in freezing temperatures and taking in the sun’s warm afternoon rays, it was nice to enjoy the wintry outdoors. I hope you enjoy the photo, too!
About one and a half weeks ago, I went outside early in the morning to take the trash to the curb for the week’s trash pick-up. The first thing I noticed upon going outside was a lovely spider’s web in the grass near the driveway. I was so moved at seeing this beautiful work of nature that I went back inside to get my camera and snap a few photos. I am glad that I did.
Spiders’ webs – especially those that are in great condition and still wonderfully intact – have been something that I have rarely observed this summer. I believe that all of the wonderful, but heavily wet weather we have had during this unusually rainy summer has potentially decreased the number of spiders’ webs that have remained actually functional.

So, while there may be few people who take notice of the beauty that can be found in a spider’s web, I would like to take this time to take notice of one of nature’s beautiful creations. Don’t take the little things for granted. Someday, they might not be there to notice and enjoy.
