Weekend Waterfalls & Hiking Adventures

Hello November!!
This past Saturday was such an awesome weekend. It wasn't anything elaborate, but I just felt really satisfied and accomplished by the time we fell asleep. The simplest days are usually the best days though, ya know? We took care of medical stuff for Roku, changed the oil, picked up Halloween candy (YUM!), went Pokemon hunting, then ended our day with a trip to the park. Now this park you can see off of the interstate that we drive on everyday. Right from the road you can see this beautiful waterfall.
 I wanted to visit this waterfall as soon as I knew it existed. We've lived here for 3 months now and finally I'm able to cross this off our tech school bucket list! This waterfall was impossible to find though! We'd attempted to find it twice already, but then this weekend was when we decided "okay, we're not leaving this place until we see it!" 

So after 1 hour of hiking through multiple trails we finally found the right path. I'm a total sucker for anything water/nature related. Oceans, creeks, waterfalls...I love it all! I'm like 98% sure this is a man made waterfall, but it's still is super cool. I had mentioned to Caleb about feeling the mist the waterfall made (I don't know why, but I was excited for it.) He didn't think there would be any, but guess what?! There was!! I was standing along the rocks, breathing the air in deeply and saying "Ya feel that mist? Nature's mist right there!" I'm pretty sure he was annoyed with me, but whatever. He loves me! :)
It was so nice getting to go out and explore different parts of this town, especially since we only have 2 more months here! I want to make sure I leave Texas without having regrets of not visiting certain places. I'm not sure when we'll ever get a chance to explore this part of the US again. 

                                              Also, IMPORTANT UPDATE on our first duty station. He got an assignment, but I don't exactly want to say where just yet in case it changes. For now I will say that it's totally not somewhere we would have chosen to move to if we had a choice, but at the same time I'm really excited to live there. I'll let y'all know as we get closer! Maybe Thanksgiving time?
Until then, I encourage you to go out and explore the city you live in. Maybe there's a restaurant or landmark you've always wanted to visit, but could never quite find the time. Make a plan to make some time and explore. I know you wont regret it!
