Anniversary Surprise!

My husband I and just came back from a 3 day get away at a beautiful B & B -Harmony Hills B&B in Arrington--in the Virginia Mountains to celebrate our 27th anniversary.  We even had a fireplace in our bedroom, which was perfect as it was in the 30's, cloudy, and a few snow flakes not to mention the howling wind!!  We went  to Crabtree Falls and climbed the 1.7 miles up the mountain, even climbing over icy rocks.  What an adventure we had.  Freezing---but still an adventure!!  I believe I read these are the highest falls east of the Mississippi--but I could be remembering wrong!! We could not get one picture of the entire falls...took lots of pictures as we climbed up the mountain....After being so cold and windy, we really enjoyed  the fireplace in our room and "hot chocolate" afterwords.  We also saw other things in the area and then spent time at Monticello-Thomas Jefferson's home.  What a fantastic place--even prettier in warmer weather, I am sure!!  A great anniversary and now we are looking forward to Christmas.  Hope you enjoy these few pictures!
