Luke and I once attempted to go stargazing in the middle of the night out in
the country. There was no moon that night which allowed the perfect setting
for observing the meteor shower. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling the
ambiguous animal noises, so we didn't last even 30 minutes out in nature
under the stars... For our wedding, I'd like to recreate an
"under-the-stars" experience in the city that will hopefully last longer
than half an hour. ~Jackie
I had everything planned - all the
details. On Monday, I would take Jackie on a hike to Tallulah Gorge and ask
her to marry me. Our first date was at Tallulah. There is a waterfall at the
bottom which we had yet to view. The dogs could accompanying us. I was
certainly more excited than nervous. Unfortunately, Jackie didn't want to go
to Tallulah again. I finally convinced her to make the trip, but it rained
the night before causing the waterfall area to close for safety reasons. To
save the proposal, I googled waterfall hikes the morning of our departure
and we settled on Panther Creek Falls. The treacherous 3+ mile hike-in
allowed for satisfaction of a view magnitudes greater than what we would
have experienced at Tallulah; and the same tedious 3+ mile hike-out gave us
ample time to savor the moment. She truly loved the entire experience and we
both had a lot of fun. The proposal was a success. ~Luke
