Brandywine Falls

After a full week of nothing but clouds and rain, it cleared up on Saturday and ended up being a beautiful day! Josh and I took advantage of the nice weather and went to Brandywine Falls, which is about thirty minutes from where we live. We went hiking, saw beautiful fall leaves, waterfalls, and even had a picnic! It was great to get outdoors while we still can and it's amazing how beautiful it is in the fall time here. I ended up taking about a hundred pictures, but I won't bore you with all of them...just a few of my favorites.

On the hike, we had to cross over the river and this is where we did it. The rocks are NOT stable we found out, but we both managed to get across with out falling in. Just our shoes and jeans got a little wet.

Josh wanted to cross over on this log, but after a few steps of his shoes sliding everwhere, he decided against that :)

This was nestled back off the trail and the river, but I loved all the leaves around it!

This was my favorite tree. I just LOVE the bright reds and oranges! This is all totally new to me! In Oklahoma, the leaves are either green or brown! I'm constantly amazed at all the differenet colors you see here around this time.
This is at the top of the waterfall. There was a trail that went down to the waterfall but I couldn't get my camera to work while we were down there. I was sooo bummed. Oh well...Next time! I do plan on coming back here often! It was beautiful!
These are the few pictures that Josh would actually take!
We had a great time there and can't wait to do it again. Hopefully next time we can go with friends and/or famiy!
