Falls Park on the Reedy is a 26 acre park located in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. I have visited this town several times and absolutely have no idea how I missed this absolutely spectacular park.
Reading about the area’s history, this part of downtown was very industrial and companies would use the river to dump their waste. They have done an awesome job of revitalizing this area. I particularly like the abandoned brick building that rather than tear it down, they stabilized it with structural steel and now use the inside for events. Great job Greenville!!
On our way back from Huntsville, we came across Little River Canyon, a few mile east of Fort Payne, Alabama. This is one of those places I would have treasured more time. Watching the kids and families play in the pools above the falls was relaxing and soothing. It would be an awesome place to sit under a tree and read or snooze.
I have been fortunate to see some amazing things in my life including The Twelve Apostles and the Great Ocean Road in Australia. I have stood atop of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and strolled through the crater of an old volcano in Hawaii. Nothing was as spectacular and beautiful as Yosemite National Park.

Some 25 years ago I was in the Smokey Mountains and had always wanted to take pictures of streams or waterfalls with a long shutter speed to get the effect of the water moving. This was my first attempt and it came out great.
On July 1, 2013, I checked a major item off of my bucket list.
My son and I were in Ohio doing some work, and we finished earlier than expected. We were closer to my 96 year old grandfather in Pennsylvania than we were to home. As I had not seen him in 10 years, we headed to Allentown. The night before we left I recalled that Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece, Falling Water, was somewhere in Pennsylvania. Looking at the map it was not far from our route, so we decided on a quick detour.
