Our Anniversary trip to the Smokies

Michael and I spent a long weekend in the Smokies for our Anniversary.

We did a lot of driving around letterboxing so we saw a lot of interesting places but no live bears.

We also spent some time with Beth and Ward we went to Huck Finn's for dinner. It was yummy the corn puffs or hush puppies where to die for. I could have had those and a drink and been perfectly happy. But the catfish was excellent too!

We went to a mini golf place too. Of course Michael smoked me as usual. Ya know I should have cheated I was keeping score. He would have called me out I'm sure though.

Thanks for our friend for letting us use her place. Its super nice.

Day 2 ~ Ramsey Cascades.

There are lots of pictures of dialup users beware..

Wow!!! This was an Awesome day. 8 mile hike to the see Ramsay Cascades.

Took us all day for this trek but it was well worth the views.

Its a 100 Foot waterfall at 2300 plus elevation. The hike was beautiful the stream meandered around the trail. We saw lots of new creatures and beautiful flowers.

Plus when we reached the top we found our letterbox. We where the first finders but to our dismay the stamp had disappeared and the logbook was waterlogged.
What is letterboxing you say check out

When we got to the top we had a snack and dipped our toes in the water wow it was cold..

I was really loud too..

There are lots of pictures to follow.

Guys at the by the falls.

Boys towered by the falls

All of us at the falls had to have proof we where all there..

Here is a look at some of the trail we had to cross to make it to the cascades.

I know this was one of my favorite parts of our trip.
