Cameron Falls, Waterton Lakes National Park, Canada

1st off - I wish to say Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day to all!! enjoy you day!! Keep a smile & I want to Thank You for stoppin' in today!! take care. ( :



"Cameron Falls", was very close walk to our campground. lots of people that day. i took my picture and then ran away. i am not much on loud, noise places. i prefer quiet. one group was a school trip. lots of fat chipmunks running around begging for food. one even tried to stare me down, giving me those cute chipmunk eyes, please feed me, please??! no food from me. i know better than that. it seems others do not. not cool. 

quick story, there was a puma sighting (it was even in the area newspapers, it was a big story) and he/she attacked a girl. the rangers killed the puma, which breaks my heart. i feel we are humans in their territory. if we don't do or go by the correct rules, stay back from wildlife, don't feed them, don't do anything with them at all, maybe take a picture or two (from a distance) and MOVE ON. there has to be more to the story than we will never know?!?! wildlife were there 1st. we moved in long after. leave the wildlife alone. they are not pets and need to be left alone. pics taken late August 2014.

Hi Beth, the waterfalls looks familiar.. I feel the same way as you when it comes to the wildlife.. They were here first. It is sad that animals have to be killed because of how humans acted.. I wish you a happy day!

Sad about the puma.

Love the falls...like you, I would have not wanted to stay if there were a lot of loud people. That is not my idea of enjoyment. And do you ever notice how a lot of people go to a place like that, and take a radio and blast it till you cannot hear? Not that I don't blast mine sometimes, just not out at a place like that.

Beth, it is meant to be a restful place, with the sound of the falls and the beauty of the surroundings. And the animals are a part of that scene. "Don't feed the animals" is more than some people can resist.

I like the divided falls very much. That area is very attractive. I agree with you about the human interaction with wild animals.
Wow, that's beautiful. I too don't like big crowds and lots of noise. Probably why we're living in the country, or maybe that's why I don't like the crowds and noise, because I've lived in the country all my life! Have a wonderful day, Beth.

Totally agree with you on being in quiet places and with our invasion on the wildlife!...:)JP

Very nice pictures and I agree the wildlife should be left alone.

Beautiful water falls. I agree.Take photo of wildlife but leave them alone.

This is a beautiful waterfall. We also like to have our waterfalls to ourselves rather than with a lot of other people.

What a pretty waterfall!

Beautiful spot! I especially like the first shot.
People just don't get it and think they're doing wildlife favors to feed them. We live around a lot of deer. One of our neighbors seems to feed them from time to time. We'll look out the window and see a line of five or six deer making a beeline to our neighbor's back porch. (It's rare that pumas attack humans, though it has increased with more human encroachment.)

Beautiful waterfall, Beth. We need to go that way sometime... There's so many waterfalls we have not seen yet....

True about the wildlife.....
Hugs,
Betsy

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
