Smalls Falls, Madrid, Maine

The week before Memorial Day my hubby and I took a road trip to visit family in New England.  Our first stop was Madrid, Me, home of Star Barn B & B the most wonderful Bed and Breakfast Inn I've ever visited.  (And that has nothing to do with the fact my sister owns it!)

On day two of our visit Ginni and David took us to a local state park called, Smalls Falls.

Under the canopy of fragrant balsam we climbed the path that led us up to the top of the falls, which careened down over a series of steep cliffs.

Being unusually hot for Maine, the mist that the falls sent shooting into the air were delightful!

The falls take several steps down the side of the mountain, each creating a new and fascinating
cascade, some of which  plummit into natural bowls created by centuries of pounding water.

We saw lots of wildflowers.

I don't know what the other flowers are called,
but these are "Stinkin' Benjamin"!

Our generous hosts;
David and Ginni

Judy!!  Get down from there!!

My honey and me!

A quiet moment's grateful "thank you"
 to the Creator of all this beauty.
