I've been living in Minnesota with the family for 7 months since returning from Europe. In mid-June I quite my job at a bindery factory and we head out on a vacation to Tennessee. We first meet up with Rachel, Adam, & Anna at a hotel in Indiana.
Here is our really nice cabin not far from the Great Smoky Mountains NP. We have a pool table, cable tv, a hot tub, and the loft is all mine since Daniel didn't come - nice!
Leaving the visitors center at the Great Smoky Mtns - Anna is ready for a hike!

The flight simulator, of course me and Adam did our best to break all the rules and upset the attendant.
This tunnel would make you feel like you were falling over as you walked through it, so we had to try running through it.

Another hike in the Great Smoky Mtns, this one to Chimney Tops.
