Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

On to Another Great Campground

It was sad leaving after the rally was over because we all had so much fun and we met a lot of people and got other's ideas.  We got packed up and were on the road by around 9:15 for what would have been about a 4 and half hour drive.  We decided to stop half way and spend most of the day and night at Oak Mountain State Park...glad we did.  When we entered the park, the lady at the gate said we had a 5 mile drive to the it is really a big park.  We asked for a woodsy site near the lake, if one existed....well, it did.


We ate lunch and just chilled the rest of the day and night.  While we were sitting outside, we spotted a woodpecker and took a few pics.

Later in the afternoon, Mike found a trail that took him down to the lake and he got some pics of the lake and area.

We had a great stay and the area our site was in was so very quiet and woodsy, one wouldn't know
you were on the outskirts of Birmingham.  The next morning we packed up and headed back to
Auburn to meet some of our commitments we had made prior to leaving.   


  1. What a very nice campground to enjoy. Amazing all the wonderful places you can enjoy on your travels.

  2. I am not a camper, but if I was a wooded site like that would be what I would choose. It looks so peaceful.

  3. Looks like a great spot:) Not much better than a quiet place to enjoy nature!

  4. You find the best campgrounds. The geese and woodpecker are great pictures along with your header.

  5. That trail looks inviting, and the lake so gorgeous and peaceful. You two have found another great campground.
