Well, its been a week overdue, but I had nearly 600 pictures to go through, 20 videos and tons of laundry. Apparently, a weeks worth of hiking clothes = two weeks of laundry??? What???
Anyways, we had a great time, if not tiring.
On Day one, we went on Laurel Falls Trail
Day two saw us at Chimney Tops.
Day three held rain and cold for us on Clingman's Dome and Arch Rock.
Day Four we relaxed a bit in Gatlinburg.
Day Five we hiked up to Grotto Falls.
We camped in Greenbrier Island Campground, a wonderful campground for tents and RVs. It was the first serious trip with out pop-up, and we discovered a leak in the plumbing, but otherwise absolutely enjoyed sleeping next to some rapids.
I also reviewed two items I had purchased earlier and used quite a bit on this trip.
Tech 4 O Trailhead 1 Watch
Zamberlan 760 Steep Hiking Boots.
We enjoyed cooking out and I am already looking forward to getting back up to the Smokies.
