The View from Clingman's dome.
Wildflowers were everywhere, a picture of the actual Smokey Mountains(notice all of the dead trees, I read that some bug that came over from another country is killing the trees), and then the most perfect frasier fir...this makes me yearn for Christmas time.
We saw a sign for the appalachian trail and decided to take off onto the trail. I dream of one day hiking a big portion of the trail and maybe even one day doing a full thruhike. This made my day. It was a very rocky and wet trail, but the kids did beautifully and Rian kept exclaiming how much he loves to hike now. Lovely.
Butterflies everywhere and we even spotted a bird.
- "White Pig" Blueberry pancakes for breakfast.
- Onigiri and Edamame for the picnic.
- Pasta sauce.
- The dinner table set with tea for everyone.
- Garlic and Thyme dinner rolls.
Hope you all had a lovely day as well.
