Linville Falls

Saturday we took our little family for another outting! This time we headed north towards the Blue Ridge Parkway and ended at Linville Falls. For those of you who are Criminal Minds fans, the Falls were featured on this week's episode...except it wasn't really Linville Falls they were showing on TV while they were mentioning the Parkway. Funny how that happens.

Anyway....we took Lile for her first BIG adventure and she was wonderful! She walked so good on her leash and stayed right with us. She was sooo tired by the time we headed home! Poor little puppy had never walked that far in her whole little life! We just love that little thing!

We kinda thought it was funny that we went to school in Boone, and live only about an hour away from Linville and neither one of us has ever visited there. You can hike, camp and take beautiful photos. You can hike up to the top of the falls..or follow a trail to the basin of the falls. We opted to take the top of the falls trail this time.

We'll probably hit the basin next time.

This is a picture of the upper falls...they're pretty small.

This is a picture of the lower "big" falls...we were WAY up above this! But thanks to my SUPER new camera...I got the close up pic, too!

For you, Ren....I got a Canon's awesome! Maybe you guys can come visit and we'll show you all this cool stuff in person!
Look what my new camera can do!

Awesome pictures! But the falls can't compare to Hawaii, right? :) Ren says "awesome camera" and he wishes he had one, too.

Ren Here.....What lens did you get with the 40d? I've been think about upgrading from the stadard 18-55 that usually comes with the camera...but the one I want, 1 78-300 IS is like I'll have to start saving my pennies!

OK..Get this...I got it as a bundle on ebay, for WAY less than than Best Buy was offering just the body and one lens...
I gor the standard 18-55 but I also go the EF 50mm and the EF 75-300.
So I also got a tripod, two memory cards a card reader, a flash a case and some more small goodies...
It was a killer steal! The Linville trip is the first time I've used it and I had to use all auto because I didn't know how to change my ISO or anything, it's not like my S2 at all!
But it's great and I'm figureing it out...I love it!
