Waterfall Romance

Friday, September 30, 2016

To me, there's nothing more romantic than going on a hike or causal walk with beautiful scenery. Being in the presence of the outdoors just leaves you breathless. Recently, my boyfriend and I went on a hike with a waterfall. It actually took us a while to find the waterfall. We hiked in the opposite direction until we came practically to a dead end. We then realized our mistake and headed back to the the direction we came from. Might I add, the scenery was superb. There were these manmade brick columns overlooking a flowing river. I'm kicking myself that I did not take pictures in front of it.

Either way, we made it to our destination. We struggled though with getting the right angle and exposure to capture the waterfall perfectly. And it didn't help that I didn't have the right lens. After giving up, we found the a little pathway leading to the waterfall. You could actually sit on the rocks right beside the water falling. This had to be the most spectacular view. I'm kicking myself that I didn't get a picture of us just causally sitting. 

We also went on a another hike a different day. Fun fact, it was a surprise hike, so unfortunately I was wearing sandals. By the end of the hike, my feet were covered in grass blades...sexy! Regardless of that, we continued to hike. My boyfriend told me there was a surprise at the end of this hike. My mind went crazy trying to picture what the surprise was. I'm the worst at waiting. But it was worth all the shortness of breaths and sore thighs. In front of me, stood a lookout tower. Man oh man, were those stairs a killer. My heart melted though as the golden colors from the sunset shone in front of us and the city was in clear view. A picture perfect memory, except I didn't have my camera :( I joked with my boyfriend that I just need to bring it everywhere I go because I'm always disappointed I don't have it. I guess a phone picture though it better than nothing. 

What's your ideal date?
