Pictures Galore

Here's a massive picture dump.  I wasn't very selective on the pictures I uploaded.  I'll try to put some rudimentary captions for the pictures with hopes that Mackenzie will correct/ add to my captions.  

Enjoy a walk with Mackenzie from Springer Mountain, GA to Gatlinburg, TN
Springer Mt.
Southern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail

Great waterfall- Long Falls, I believe? On day 1.

So zen-like

This tree was uprooted.  Look at the size of that rock!

I should have posted these pictures sooner, so sorry dear readers of this blog.  I have been busy gathering my supplies and preparing to join my wife on this adventure.
