We had a great time on this trip. We met up with some of my best friends and explored the many beautiful sights and stops found in Cades Cove.
As usual, Steve and I were eager to seek out the supposedly impressive waterfalls in our visit to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. One such waterfall was Rainbow Falls. However, we were both a bit disappointed with this waterfall.
Inspirational vistas is what to be excepted when hiking the 8.2 mile round trip hike to Charlies Bunion. The trail begins on the Appalachian trail at the Newfound Gap Parking lot. The first 1.5 miles is all up hill and extremely rocky but the reward is a view of the North Carolina Smokies.
