I’m breaking my self-imposed one photo rule here. Yesterday was a glorious day in western NC, so we decided to buck tradition and go for a hike on Easter Sunday. We drove about an hour to Big Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We met my step-father there and had a nice picnic before hiking about 3 miles. The water was freezing, but that didn’t stop the boys from rock hopping and getting wet. Spring was on full display with trillium, Indian Paintbrush, wild iris and wild geranium. Everything was lush and green and it just felt good to be outside. Hope you had a happy Easter too.
