Betty who?

I'm not sure what it is about blogging but it just hasn't been happening. I think using Twitter and Facebook has something to do with it. Twitter has gone in a direction that isn't going to last, like mostly following people I don't know, so maybe when I break up with or revamp myTwitter I'll blog more.

But I had to share some of these pics. I'm trying Project 365 on Flickr (probably another contribution to lack of blogging, but maybe I can make it work for it instead).

Here are some pics of a couple of local water falls. Hayden Run Falls and Indian Run Falls. Indian Run Falls is very easily accessed, and Hayden Run Falls is a short walk after going down some steps.
Check them out before the weather gets warm!

A few weeks ago, some friends and I hiked from Old Man's Cave to Ash Cave. We did this before the annual hike they sponsor with huge crowds, so it was just us and an occasional sighting of another person :) There was less snow and ice than there is now, but it was still gorgeous!

So far, all of this outdoor activity (I've been going on some Metro Park hikes too) is postponing the winter blues. Yay!
