Burney Falls

When you're camping in the mountains, the must-see sights can be rather far away. On this gorgeous day, we stretched our road tripping to a 100-mile round trip to McArthur-Burney Falls State Park. The centerpiece of the park is the 129-foot Burney Falls. We hiked down to and up and around the falls, shooting many pictures along the way. It was one of those places where people take pictures of each other. A lovely couple took this picture of another lovely couple.

Burney Falls is fed by Burney Creek. As we crossed the bridge over the picturesque creek, we snapped a picture. The 1.5-mile hike was a great way to spend the afternoon as we exercised our bodies and our shutter fingers.

Once again, our attention was drawn to big things, like the falls, and the small things in the park. This bee was very busy this afternoon!

Was this far away spot worth a long drive on a beautiful afternoon? Absolutely!

We just knew that M went along on this trip! :-)

We know how busy you were on this short excursion but enjoyed the wonderful photos that you took and posted to the blog.

We look forward to seeing you out and about one of these days......

Safe travels,
