Beauty in the drizzle

Pretty things in the drizzle at Noccalula Falls in north Alabama. We were lucky that the rain had stopped while we walked around the park. A little drizzle for a short time but at least the pouring rain had stopped. It was still a beautiful place even in the gloom.

The petting zoo animals were having fun in the mild weather.

I would like to get back there in the fall when the leaves are changing.

A lot of history in a little town.

Cripple Creek was exactly what I thought it was going to be. A sleepy little town far from the big city. Except for the big casino that looked brand new.  Not sure how old that was.  We walked around a little bit before catching our train ride.

The white building was the oldest building still intact. The original town “parlour house”. Now it’s a museum.  Love their motto “Where the customer always comes first.” You can read some history about it here. 

The usual things you find while waiting for your train ride are above. The little bird is a junco. They were very skittish.

A lot of fun in a tiny little town.

And then off we went on our train ride. More to come….
