Lula Lake

Yesterday's weather was gloriously sunny, one of those days that just makes you feel warm and happy to your core. Mr. Cheese and I took a hike up at Lula Lake, on Lookout Mountain. The area is managed by a land trust, and it is only open to the public two days a month. I was really happy with the way most of my pictures came out, although I didn't quite capture the large falls in all of their grandiosity, so I'll take more pics of it next trip. First pic is the base of the smaller (yet still quite impressive) falls of Rock Creek.
Rock Creek, so clear and just beautiful.

Lula Lake from above the small falls. Yes, it's that blue.
The small falls from above.
Seriously, no photoshopping, this is the true color of the lake.
Pretty pink blooms on this unidentified tree, must look this one up in the tree book.

(These are random people that I don't know)

Signs of an long-since-gone homestead: daffodils and rambling rose bushes (although beautiful, sadly the roses are quite invasive).

When I mentioned in Friday's post that I'd be taking a hike in one of Tennessee's most beautiful places, I forgot that Lula Lake is actually in Georgia. I often do this, as we live so close to the state line. The next open gate day at Lula Lake is next Saturday. Perhaps that's a good day for a picnic and a bit more exploring...

It's so funny...we live in the most beautiful areas. Beach or mountains?? Why can't we have both?
