Here Comes the Bride - in hiking shoes

Today was a special day because my dear friends, Jeanne and Brian, renewed their vows. They've been married for 13 years and we all hiked up to Rainbow Falls, Jones Gap, Marietta, SC. Actually, some of their close friends (including us) hiked up to the falls around 9 am (its an hour hike) and they came after. Jeanne came walking up to the falls and we all yelled "SURPRISE!!!!". She started crying and Brian was so excited that he pulled off the surprise.

The hike was a total of 2.1 miles, i think it has an elevation change of 1100 ft. It was a difficulty 7!! Which for me was great, just to get in a different kind of workout but also because my 2 stepdaughters, Neely & Jesse, did it too. They did great. They never complained at all!! It took us about an hour and 10 minutes to get to the top.

Here are some pics from the day:

Only time you'll see Brian being nice (j/k :) )


It was a great day and I was happy to see my friends so in love, even after 13 years!! 

p.s. I was 17 when they got married!

Do you like to hike?
What are some cool mountains/waterfalls in your area?
