Okay, we went to yet another park today and had a great time. This time, we went to Panther Creek State Park, which is probably about the half way point between Jessie's house and mine, taking the long way, lol.

This first shot was taken at the bus station around the corner from my house... sorry, couldn't avoid the power lines...I'll see if I can find a different angle tomorrow.

I've been fascinated by this tree that fell some time ago, and I drive by it every day on my way to and from work.

Now, for the fun stuff!


At the very top of the "hill" at Panther Creek State Park... we're 168 feet up above the lake at this point.


This is the first thing I saw at the beginning of our journey. Not sure what kind of tree it was, but clearly oozing sap.


The trail that awaits us!


A dried up "creek bed", layered in shale.


Another angle of the creek bed.


Interesting how this tree grew before it's time ended.


More trail awaiting us


Love the rocks out here, beautiful to me!


Trinity, in all her photogenic glory! She did her own hair.. pretty good for a 2 yr old lol


Trinity and Aiyana together


Tres Hermanas! The three stooges is more like it lol


The four brats together; Robert, Chenoa, Trinity and Aiyana


Trinity insisted I take a picture of her. She kept sitting down on rocks and trees telling me "Mommy, take picture me, please. Cheeseburger Mommy!"


Aiyana again. We came across a tree that grew with a bend in the trunk so we borrowed it for a few minutes.


Trinity wanted to pose like Aiyana, so she needed help. She's only 3 ft tall, after all. Lol


My wanna-be model who never smiles, lol.


The person who usually stays behind the camera, aka me


The Daddy-bear lol


Some mushrooms growing on a tree that fell over


Same 'shrooms, different angle.


Aiyana insisted on posing next to the tree with the mushrooms


Don't let that sweet face fool you!


My goof troop!


Going uphill now


Not sure what kind of rock this is, but it looked cool so I snapped a shot


One of my new favorite pictures!


New life in the making here!


Did I mention this camera has an awesome macro mode yet!?


Almost half way! I was still pretty high up when I took this photo


Wonder how this would look black and white or old photo style...


We found a small stream coming from underground, flowing into the lake after we passed the half way point.


This water was so cold and crisp, and refreshing! We took a break, slurped up some water, and marched on!


I got carried away taking pix here, sorry


This one came out a bit blurry, but figured I'd share anyway


This was the source, in the mid-left of this photo, there's a hole in the ground, and this is where the stream started at.


The stream flowing down into the lake


Dead, hollow tree we came upon.


Another small stream that was down in a huge hole in the ground... I'm guessing about 10 ft down from where I was standing.


This rock where the water seems to be flowing from was bigger than me, and I'm not a small person! Looks like a cave or den of some kind under the rock there.


One more shot.. I was enamored by this place.

I'd been to the park before, but never hiked the trail and got to see these things. After we passed that last stream coming from under the rock, I had to stop photographing because Trinity had fallen asleep, and it got really muddy, slick and steep, all at one time. Yeah, me and the daddy-bear took turns carrying her heavy butt. 35 lbs don't seem like much weight, till you carry it for 4+ miles lol.

You're welcome Rodrigo! We all enjoyed ourselves today. The kids were tired, and that's a plus. Maybe next time we'll take the dogs, since dogs are allowed at this park, on leash of course. I think the dogs would love it.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I've already scoped out some spots where I can get awesome photos of the dogs. I'm always thinking of places I can pose my kids and dogs for great photo ops lol.

Lol Shanon.. we call that her "Girl Fro"! My older two like to use the flat iron on their hair but I had to tell them they're damaging their hair by using it all the time. All three of them have the same texture of hair, but none of them have ever had the same quality, minus when they were newborns and had that gorgeous slick black wig, lol. Yes, we had a blast. It was an impromptu decision to go out there, and we didn't take the dogs because of the heat. It's already reaching almost in the 90s here. It was 87 degrees yesterday! But, we're definitely planning another outing with the dogs, earlier in the day, so we can get some great shots. I know the dogs will love it, and I already spotted some awesome places to put the dogs to get great shots of them as well. :woof: Can't wait!!

Lol Zohawn.. he's got his son here too! And, unfortunately, my girls are only here til their dad gets back from deployment, and they go back to Georgia, so the score will be even once again.
