Sarah, the kids and I left for the Great Smoky Mountains early Tuesday morning. We went whitewater rafting Tuesday afternoon and had a BLAST.
Then Wednesday we went up to Clingman's Dome, hiked around up there and took in the views. Then we hiked out to Andrews Bald. Very pretty day. I think the kids enjoyed it?!?!? Wednesday evening we took Elena to the airport to fly home. The boys stayed with us until Friday.
Thursday we left the cabin and drove home to Charlotte. From GSMNP to Asheville, we took the Blue Ridge Parkway and stopped for short hikes at Devils Courthouse and Black Balsam Mountain. Great views all along the trip.
