Friday night, I got back from a crazy spring break. No I was not partying, drinking, or waking up with my friends then discovering a dead body that forces us to make a blood oath so no one ever reveals our secret. Instead, I was hiking through the Smokey Mountains with Kairos.
19 of us went to rough it up in the wilderness for three days. We left last Tuesday and drove to Nashville. We explored a little of downtown Nashville for a few hours then stayed the night at a church in Nashville. The next morning we drove to our first hiking destination. All the outlooks were blocked off because they were unstable so we really could not see the waterfalls to well. From there we drove to Pizza Hut for lunch. After we got our stomachs full we drove to our final destination where we stayed for the next three days and two nights. The hike to our camp site was not too difficult. It was about 2.5 miles and it was beautiful! The weather was perfect too! It was about 75 degrees and never rained!
The second day we hiked a little further to a site known as Virgin Falls. It was a massive waterfall that flowed out of a cave. We hiked to the bottom and it was wild. The waterfall was creating huge gusts if wind and mist was flying everywhere! After that Phil and I hiked to the top and explored the cave that the waterfall flowed from. It was literally the largest cave I had ever been in! The next day we packed up and came home!
Here are some pictures of our adventures.
Overall, I loved the trip! Everyone on the trip grew closer and we all had a blast together!
Until next time friends!
