Hello everyone. I’ve been busy but I wanted to describe my next adventure in 2001. Everyone remembers that horrible year here in the United States. I remember that day very well. I was a stay at home mom and watch the events unfold on the television. My family and I had planned a trip for North Carolina. We planned to leave on the 15th, but those plans were in jeopardy because it seemed like there was one attack after another. After that horrible day we decided to go ahead and go. We were in the Smokies on the North Carolina side and I think, at least for us, it was the best thing we could have done. We went to various waterfalls around the area and it was beautiful. It made us realize how beautiful this country we live in really is! Just look at this beautiful waterfall.
