The Great Smoky Mountains

This last week my family and I have been on vacation to The Smoky Mountains. We’ve had a great time and all the beautiful scenery in the national park has set the stage for some fun photography moments. Here are a few of my guys right next to some rapids in the park..

We happened to stop at a ranger’s station to get a few maps and we talked to a very nice woman who gave us the idea to go to Grotto Falls. She told us that it’s only about a mile and a half of walking on a trail  to get to the falls, so we thought it sounded like a great idea. Friday morning we set off on the trail and walked….and walked….and walked. It was ALL uphill straight to the falls and was officially the longest mile and a half I have ever walked. I have never been so proud of my two little guys because they  handled it like champs. As you can tell, it was well worth the trek..

So beautiful and peaceful, I may have to frame this one.

I’ll have more pics soon!

Happy Saturday.
