Soco Falls


Hi Friends,

More pics from our vacation!

It was so hot on vacation we decided to find some water to play in. Near Maggie Valley, only about a 10 minute trip away is Soco Falls. A beautiful waterfall in the mountains. We decided to head up and play in it for a few hours.

It was beautiful!!!! You can see how BIG it is by how tiny the people are in this pic.

So I guess this is my big weight loss reveal… because you are about to see me in a swimsuit.

Getting ready to get in! The guys stayed up top and watched us play!

These last 3 pics are a funny series of an argument we were having about WHO was going to get in that ice cold mountain waterfall?!? We were cracking up!

Me yelling… “YOU!”

Her yelling… “No, YOU!”

Gosh we are silly! In the end we both got wet because Shane threw a drink over the waterfall and I had to get it while Tammy held me steady. Holy moly that was cold!


We spent the rest of the afternoon sitting in the water enjoying the day. Oh how I love playing in creeks!


From the web and oh so true. If only kids today understood this. I know I sure do!

Sigh...how I love North Carolina!! Beautiful pics. You are so right...when I was a kid, I played for HOURS every day in the woods and in the creek--nothing better for a kid than seeing nature up close. We watched bugs, climbed trees, walked the length of the creek (IN the creek ), and scooped up tadpoles to examine them. Kids today are missing so much of that because of computers, Playstation etc. Hope Pierre's groomer survived! ;) --Jan

Look how skinny you are! Beautiful waterfall, I love them, there's just something extra special about water falling. I was a creek kid too. We take our kids to the creek when we can. Wish we had it closer like I did as a kid.

Great post, Carmen. I love the photo of "The Original Playstation". Nowadays if you tell a child to "go outside and play until supper", like mother did us, they look at you like you are crazy! Ha ha! "Oh, it's hot out there, there is dirt out there, there is nowhere to plug-up my Play Station, etc... :)

Oh, and Carmen, you really do look great! Congrats on the weight loss :)
