LAUREL FALLS.

I spent a beautiful weekend in the Smoky mountains last month. It was packed with good community, delicious food, and lots of picture taking. The one thing I knew I had to do before heading home was to go on a hike. Early Sunday morning we packed up and three of us headed deep into the magical Smoky Mountain National Forest where adventure awaited.

I don't know about you, but my soul craves adventure. I love to be outside, to breathe the fresh air, and to soak up the beauty around me. This world is too beautiful to stay inside and view from afar. So grab a buddy and get out there, brave heart! :)













XOXO.

Beautiful waterfalls! I love being in the woods. Even if I'm just going to sit in one spot instead of walking. Just breathing all the fresh oxygen is lovely. :)

Absolutely GORGEOUS photos! I love Laurel Falls! When my family and I used to go to the Smokey's every summer, we would always visit there and it was always one of my favorite spots. Love all the trees turning colors! And of course, the falls! Great shots of everything!

Your pictures are gorgeous! I nearly cried I was so homesick looking at them. There is nothing like the Smokeys in Fall.

I love these pictures!!! Day trips to the mountains are the thing I probably miss most about living in the south! :)

Such stunning pictures. I can only imagine how beautiful this place is in person! It reminds me a lot of home; sadly there isn't much of this kind of nature where I live now *sigh*
