Laurel Falls

We arrived in Gatlinburg on Friday for our first family vacation with the WHOLE family, kids and grandkids included. At midday on Saturday, we made our way into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, one of my favorite spots on earth, and set out (with two strollers) on the 1.3-mile Laurel Falls Trail. This wide paved trail to the 75-foot Laurel Falls was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1935.

My grandson Miles reeeaaaallly wanted in the water, but the rocks were so slick (and the walk back 1.3 miles!) that the most we would let him do is stand in the water at the pool's edge.

We also managed a full family perfect on the site...though Calleigh seemed interested only in what Mimi was doing.
