#Waterfalls and #Wildflowers Walks – Cloudland Canyon State Park

I made a July trip over to Cloudland Canyon State Park to see the waterfalls with an expectation that I’d also see many wildflowers along the way, and I wasn’t disappointed.  While recently posting a report on a visit to nearby Lula Falls, I discovered that I’d never written the planned report on the Cloudland Canyon trip.  I quickly realized that I didn’t remember many of the details of the walk – and I was relieved to discover that the July trip was in 2011, not just this past July, so the memory fade was more reasonable.  But to refresh that failing memory, I made another trip up there on Dec 5.  Here are a dozen photos from those two “waterfalls and wildflowers walks.”
