Tenn. Trip Day 2 – Smoky Mountain Waterfall Hike!

Day 2 started with Melissa and I having a nice big breakfast and then we went to the outlet mall for a few since it was raining outside. Once it started to clear up we decided to head to the Smoky Mountains State Park and go to the Cascade Falls.
We knew it was going to be a 4 mile strenuous hike and knowing this thought we should take a flashlight with us since we were headed out at 4:30 PM. According to the park map we should be able to make it out to the falls and back by 8:30 PM. Well we hiked and hiked and hiked, took several pictures and finally made it to the beautiful Cascade Falls. Check out the pictures to see how beautiful it was! We then started back and got about half a mile in to the hike when it started to get dark. Around mile marker 2 it was pitch black dark and we had to use the flashlight. Melissa slipped and sprained her ankle at mile marker 3 but was a trooper and kept going all the way to then end. We were able to make it back and now we have an adventure store to tell :-). Leaving the cabin and already miss it.
