If you know me and/or follow my blog, you would know I love to travel and the smokies are one of my favorite places in the world. We took a family vacation with some friends late last year to a cabin in Elk Point just outside the park boundaries. The weather wasn’t the best, but the company was great and we were still able to get out and do some exploring. Some of the places pictured below are Cataloochee Valley, Mingo Falls, Clingmans Dome and Looking Glass Falls. Looking forward to making this a yearly tradition!
