Viva Las Vegas: Sacred Recipe#links


Fall is my FAVORITE season of all. I love the rich and vibrant colors of the earth. I also love soups, warm homemade breads, crock pot meals, fires, and cool mornings and evenings and a lot of other things that make me think of fall. When I logged onto the internet today I saw this article on and thought I'd share a few of my favorite pictures/places they featured. I would love to visit all three places. Please note on the Michigan one-I just think it's a cool name and is beautiful! Just because I want to visit it does not mean however that I have lost the Buckeye spirit. ;) LOL
Top left: Tahquamenon Falls boasts the third-most-voluminous vertical waterfall east of the Mississippi, behind only New York's Niagara and Cohoes falls. Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, leaves from cedar, spruce and hemlock trees leach tannins into the Tahquamenon River, giving it a brown color and earning the spectacle the nickname "Root Beer Falls."

Right: In Georgia’s early history, land that is now national forest barely survived overuse of its sensitive ecosystems and depletion of its natural resources. Flora and fauna once again thrive after a concentrated restoration effort that began with the forest service’s 1911 purchase of 31,000 acres of land. Here, trees in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest treat visitors to a multicolored performance.

Bottom left: The southern Appalachian region, once an ancient home to the prehistoric Paleo Indians, hosts some 100 species of deciduous native trees. From this diversity a show-stopping foliage spectacle emerges each fall. The vista seen here at Deep Creek in North Carolina’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park neighbors three waterfalls that are accessible by a short hike.
