For our last hike of MLK weekend, we stopped by Dog Slaughter Falls (near Cumberland Falls). Sydney had the camera so that he could capture some of the water-and-ice sights that made us stop every few minutes on our hike. And, as we pulled out of the resort to start the drive home, a barred owl swooped over the road and perched on a branch just off the road:
This is by far our favorite family vacation so far: time away from the world, a distinct lack of whining and dragging of feet (thanks, kids!), Sydney in charge of planning, challenging outside hikes, and warm soup and tea when we made it back to the cabin. The spring got busy very soon after this, but this was a great, unexpected break from it all.
