McCormick's Creek on a Stormy Evening...

On Thursday, 30th March, we darted some severe weather and headed north-east to McCormick's Creek State Park for a couple of hours. We did a short hike and rested by the river, downstream of the waterfall. Candace's mom and nephew met us there and we had a lovely hike along the riverbank. We left McCormick's Creek around supper time and drove through some torrential rain on our drive back home. It was a lovely spontaneous trip to another state park! :)
