Hey everyone! This is the first post in my short series about Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I have been to over 15 national parks and monuments in the US so far in my life, and every one is different than the next. It is amazing to see what comes with each new national park I visit. The pictures in this post are from the Middle Prong Trail, which consists of numerous waterfalls, cascades, and cataracts. It’s an 8.3 mile long roundtrip and has a lot of elevation gain, so it is one of the more difficult hikes in the park. The falls pictured are the Lower Lynn Camp Falls, which are relatively small but fast-moving and beautiful nonetheless. Stay tuned for more posts about my time in the Smokies!
