I love having people over to our home in Colorado and I haven’t had the opportunity to host too many visitors in Rocky, so I was thrilled when our friends from Colorado Springs popped in for a couple of days with their adorable little one!
We hiked with them on the trail to Grotto Falls in the Great Smoky Mountains.
It was a beautiful trail with plenty of rocks and tree roots to maneuver.
Getting behind the falls.
Someone said something about that guy in the background being on Survivor, but I don’t think that’s very likely. Maybe I should have asked him for his autograph!
We found out later that there are usually lots of salamanders around here—we didn’t see any.
I don’t know much about photography (would love to learn more someday!) and probably took this one all wrong, but I like the way it looks like the falls are pouring light into the water at the bottom.
The “I’m falling off the rocks!” pose…always a good one.
Thanks for coming to visit us, friends!
I’ll have lots more to write about the Smokies—loved them!!
