First Day of Fall at Burgess Falls State Park,Tennessee

Saying goodbye to summer is so hard for me while cold and freezing days is fast approaching. I heard we will have a bad winter this year, I hope they're wrong. Actually it's a first day of autumn and it's beautiful and cool outside but my bloody body is not used to it even I'd experienced  below freezing or negative degrees fahrenheit  I need a light jacket even it is the comfortable day for you.

First day of fall and I can't deny it the weather is  comfortable for everyone so hubby and I decided to spend the first day of Fall at Burgess Falls, Tennessee. It's quite a ride and took one and half  hour from our home. It was all worth at the end of the day. 

Burgess Falls is for everyone who loves adventures, hiking, nature lovers and falls.If you are that person this post might interest you to visit the falls. 

Speaking of hiking, this would be our first hiking this year and I wore my shoe that I bought 2 years ago ( imagine that).  Actually, I don't have a chance to use it since our little one is too young to do all of the hiking so we waited the right time. I hope this would be just the beginning  hubby and I would be back to our outdoor thing not as a single hikers but a family friendly hikers.
