Six Days, Five Waterfalls – Our Smoky Mountain Hiking Adventures

In six days in the Great Smoky Mountains this past week we hiked to five different waterfalls (in various numbers of family members but with son-in-law Matt and myself doing all of them). Each one was special and striking in its own way, as were the paths leading to them – some moderate in length and slope, while others were long and rugged.

But, regardless of how easy or difficult the trail was, to reach the goal of the waterfall and see the beauty of God’s handiwork with rock and water was amazing. In order, I give you all five waterfalls from our own cameras and camera phones.

Hen Wallow Falls

Matt, and grandsons Logan and Nolan, along with myself, were the "survivors" of the Hen Wallows Falls trail on a hot, humid day. Cool refreshment was waiting for us.
