Last Sunday, my dad and I headed into Great Smoky Mountain National Park to spend the day hiking the trails!
Our first stop was the visitor's center, where we got to walk through a sweet little "farm village", complete with live chickens and a garden!
We drove up to clingman's dome trail, where we hiked up to an observation deck where you could see tons of the park! It was windy, but totally worth it.
After that, we headed to the Tennessee side of the park, where we went to chimney top trail and hiked 1,200 feet up to the top of a mountain! There were waterfalls all over the trail, and the fall leaves were just stunning. Once we got to the top, you had to climb a sheer cliff face to get to the very top. I can't believe I actually made it up; eeek!
We ended the day driving through the adorable (and sometimes adorably tacky) nearby towns and going back to the cabin to cook dinner!
