My hike

Last night I asked my husband if we could go somewhere today so I could take pictures and he said yes we could go to South Mountain.  We got up at 6:00am so we could get there early before it got to hot and we hiked for 1 1/2 hours.  It was beautiful and not to hot and the wind was blowing which kept you cooled off.  If you don't know what South Mountain is its a small mountain, nothing to bad and when you get to the top there is a beautiful waterfall.  All the way up the mountain you walk by a stream with smaller waterfalls.  I took my digital camera so I could get some pictures to put on here but in the excitement of everything I completely forgot to take any so I've found some online to show you what it looks like. The reason I'm telling about going to South Mountain is because I'm counting that as my exercise for today.  On the way up you have to climb rocks that are placed like steps then higher up you get to actual steps that are very steep.  I realized how out of shape I was when I got to the steps.  Every couple of flights of steps we would take a rest because I was so out of breath and my heart was beating so hard.  I realized today that if I plan to be any kind of photographer I'm definitely going to have to get in shape.  I have to be able to keep up with the millions of other photographers competing for jobs.  It was weird when we got there today the only people we saw anywhere weren't tourist, they we're photographers.  My husband and myself we're out climbing over giant rocks trying to find the best shots and I'm sure people thought we we're crazy but oh well.  I would definitely say that I got a good workout today. 

The following pictures are some of the beautiful waterfalls you can see at South Mountain State Park.  I found them on the following site and they were supplied by tomh1000.  I can only hope to be able to take beautiful pictures like these.
