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".

For the Beauty of the Earth…



Gerri and I decided the time was right, the weather was good and the leaves were at their peak in the north Georgia mountains, so…off we went.  Destination, Cloudland Canyon State Park, journey…the view and serenity of the trip!  When we got there the first of the week, there were not many campers but was told they were full for the weekend.  Being that we enjoy less of a crowd, we left before the weekend arrived and enjoyed a very quiet and beautiful week at Cloudland. 

We drove on the road so lined with beautiful trees to the lookout area, hiked some of the trail and just enjoyed the beauty of the trees at this season of the year.









We just kind of hung out in the park and enjoyed being… with the exception of the strong winds and rain Thursday night.   We meandered back home Sunday only to discover our backyard full of the same beautiful colors that we had left in the mountains…God’s beauty is everywhere!



It has been a great week!
