In Focus 283 – The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Our family enjoyed a trip to the mountains last weekend. We were able to spend some time with Jason’s family in a beautiful cabin tucked away in Sevierville, Tennessee. We love spending time in the mountains and we also love spending time with family. We decided to head out to Cades Cove on Monday and hike Abrams Falls. It was a bit more challenging than we had thought, but our family loves to get in a good hike. We managed to get in a little outlet mall shopping, a walk through the streets of Gatlinburg, and a drive through the Smoky Mountains National Park during the rest of our time away.

We could not believe this guy! He climbed and jumped off the fall. He also swam around in the waters.
