This past Mother's Day will go down in the record books as one of the best. It's hard to top the morning my then nine-year-old son woke me up to beer and cornflakes, or any Mother's Day spent with all three of my children and their father. Rocks tip the scale.
The following photos and captions explain our rock adventure on Grouse Creek where we hiked to a natural grotto and waterfall just 15 miles from Elmira Pond.
Linking up with Abracabadra for Wordless Wednesday with my own photos shot with my smartypants phone.
