Handsome and I went to the smokey mountains. We stayed in the city of Gatlinburg and mostly tried to venture on the mountains as much as possible.

This was our hike on the Rainbow Falls. It was a pretty sweet hike. We wanted to go all the way to the top but there was over a foot of snow at the top. We were not prepared for the snow.

It was a pretty steep elevation so we stopped for some breaks and some layer changes.

It was pretty steep incline so I wanted to be there.

But further up we went.
