I'm not really a red rose and fancy dinner kinda gal when it comes to Valentine's Day (or any day for that matter). Some girls love that, but not me. Sure, it might make me seem a little ungrateful, but I just don't like 'stuff' and fancy things. So, having a man in my life who not only gets that about me but fully embraces it, is the most wonderful feeling.
Last week I shared a little about our belated Valentine's Day celebration from last year to the Poppy Fields and Poppy Festival. This week I want to share what we did this year, albeit a couple of days early. After dropping the kids at school on Monday morning, we drove almost an hour and a half north to Crestline in the San Bernardino Mountains to hike to Heart Rock. If this isn't one of the most romantic hiking destinations I don't know what is ... and perfect for Valentine's Day. The only reason we did it a couple of days early was that we were expecting rain the following day and had already read that the trail can be slippery, so we wanted to get ahead of it.
Yes, it really is a heart. And, if you are game enough (not me though), you can walk over the top of the waterfall to the other side and shimmy across the rocks to get inside the rock above the heart. Perfect photo op, but after watching a lady trying to get back out of there, there was no way we were going to try it.
