Tanyard Creek Nature Trail

I love reminiscing, don’t you?

Two of my favorite guys. My other favorite guy was off playing in the water. 😉

Our cousins took us on a hike during our visit and it was beautiful! The drive there was beautiful in itself. There were maple trees the whole way, with bright shades of yellow, orange and reds. If you’ve ever seen maple trees changing in the fall, you know what I’m talking about. And if you love nature as I do, you get excited to see such beauty. It’s the small things in life that truly make life enjoyable, wouldn’t you agree?


The trails were really fun. Thankfully, hubby was having a good day and the trails weren’t too steep, though I myself got a little out of breath, lol. It was a great reminder that I need to get more active and exercise more, ha! But it was so worth it!


I’m sure the waterfall has different water levels during different parts of the year but it was beautiful nonetheless. We all, but one cousin, wore our sneakers and had to be careful where to step so as not to soak our shoes but it was low enough we were able to do so.

I LOVED this view, isn’t it beautiful!

If you’re looking to get great shots, you may have to wait your turn, lol. There were a few other visitors taking photos and as patient as I try to be, I think it would be courteous to sit and look through your shots where you’re out of the way, right? But I finally got my clear shots and was happy to move along myself, lol.


It was quite a peaceful experience, not too many people passing by. I definitely look forward to going back to this spot.

First time I ever got down on the ground for a shot, lol.
Another “belly” shot, lol.

Ok, so I’m new at photography and hopefully these weren’t over edited, lol. I’m always open to suggestions! This was an awesome spot to practice!

Hi! I'm Amanda, a wife, caregiver to my Parkie hubby, homeschooling mom of three and recently have become a soap making enthusiast. My hubby and I have had many an adventure over the years, our most recent being homesteaders in a small rural area of Alabama. We currently have chickens, a dairy goat we've lovingly named Georgia, three young Hereford pigs, a livestock guardian named Snow whom our children adore and two spoiled cats named Felix and Emma. Soon, we plan on embarking on our biggest adventure to date, an extended cross country trip around the United States. Our longest trip was a two week trip to New York and Canada and I thought that was long! So, thank you in advance for visiting my blog, my first by the way! I hope I have something to offer to my readers. Happy reading!
