The past week my husband and I spent exploring the south in temps that were spectacular compared to what we experience in WI during the month of March.
Life down south is so amazingly different that I can only imagine how it would be to live somewhere where I could “play” outside year round. I love it hot, sunny and dry.
We did so many things in a matter of a few days that I don’t even know where to start. So maybe sharing pictures will be the easiest.
We ate so much BBQ which made my husband VERY happy.
We fell in love with a new to us flavor of soda we found. I am not a soda drinker but this was fantastic. Thank goodness we don’t have this here in WI or I would have a problem.
The first thing I noticed when we arrived were flowers and blooming trees everywhere. HA, our trees aren’t even close to flowering here in WI.
We hiked some amazing trails in the area we visited. We hiked into a canyon to reach a gorgeous waterfall,
we hiked to the top of a mountain to enjoy the view of the entire area surrounding us.

We visited the local zoo,
we found our first geocache in this state and shared lunch on Lake Bailey with some feathered friends.
All in all, we had a wonderful time. In my condition, being 6 weeks post op, I don’t feel I did too bad considering. Travel went smooth, hiking was slower than usual but made me feel normal and back to my old self again. Plus, having sunshine and warmth could never hurt anyone in my opinion. I may not have made it to the top of that mountain but that is not to say I am disappointed. My husband finished and took the pictures from the top to share with me which is good enough in my eyes. I do plan to return and complete this hike, but for now, I am happy.
I will be updating the trails page in the next few days/weeks with all the hikes we did and some pointers for each one. Until then, here are a few more pics of what we experienced.
