The Great Smoky Mountains National Park Cades Cove, Tennessee
Hiked to Abram's Falls today.
Rocks and exposed roots.
Made dents in the sole of my Chacos.
And as we hiked.
For that moment.
When our laughter would linger.
That moment along the trail.
When everyone would get lost in their own thoughts.
Beneath the shade of the moss-covered trees.
And all you could hear was the shake of their leaves.
The grit of soles against uneven ground.
And the call of the waterfall miles away.
