T and I went on a hike in my Smoky Mountains. It was freezing cold with a little snow left on the ground from last week. The air was crisp and damp with heavy clouds above. We decided to walk as far as we wanted and then eat lunch… and pray for no rain. Off we went.
There were a few others willing to brave the cold for such a dreamy walk. Here are a few photos along the way. This is known as the waterfall hike and you will see why.

YEAH!!! We walked for 2 hours, ate our lunch, and it didn’t rain until the minute we got back to the car.
This is the first time either one of us had been on this particular hike but it won’t be our last. It is literally 10 minutes from our cabin in Townsend and I think this is the most AMAZING place. It is a gradual slope and follows the Middle Prong of the Little River so it will be very pleasant any time of year.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful Easter Break wherever you are and were able to ponder the meaning of the season.
