Porters Creek Trail In The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Porters Creek Trail

Last weekend we headed back over to the Greenbrier area of The Smokies to hike Porters Creek Trail. (Second hike of 2018!) It’s located fairly close to the Ramsey Cascades trailhead (which is my favorite hike in The Smokies). It’s a pretty easy hike that totals a little over 6 miles round trip.

Spruce Flats Falls Trail In The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Last weekend was perfect, albeit chilly, for a winter hike. We decided on hiking the Spruce Flats Falls Trail in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was my first time hiking this trail and it was so much fun to explore a new part of The Smokies.

The Spruce Flats Falls trail is a relatively short and easy hike, totaling 2 miles round trip. It would be an excellent hike for beginners, kids, or even experienced hikers. There are also a lot of great photo opportunities.

The Ultimate Guide To Exploring The Grand Canyon North Rim

The Ultimate Guide To Exploring The Grand Canyon North Rim

Visiting the Grand Canyon North Rim has been on my bucket list for a while, so it was an easy must-see destination during our American Southwest Road Trip Vacation. We were lucky enough to book a cabin for a night (best decision ever!) and we were able to experience the sunset over the beautiful North Rim views.

We started our Southwest Vacation by flying into Las Vegas and staying the night in the city. The following morning we completed the 5(ish) hour drive to the Grand Canyon North Rim. The drive was pretty long but worth it to experience such an amazing place.
