The Great Smokies

Returned from the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee on Friday. I already miss them.


Someday we’ll return to Townsend to complete the Middle Prong Trail and to Gatlinburg to hike to Grotto Falls. Far too much to do in this area when the goal is leisure and you take your sweet time waking up and having breakfast and sipping tea while morning departs.

My kids had a blast and have the injuries to prove it. Real life with early morning rush and schedules and traffic resumes tomorrow. I’ll be daydreaming about our next road trip.

Words added to THE CATALYST while on vacation: 1,176. Words since I’ve returned: 451.
