14 thousand words

Here are some photos of the grand time we had on vacation. In no particular order.

Rock slide! This would have been painful even if I hadn't fallen on a large rock on our hike to the slide. It was still fun, but oh, my aching bum...


Peering at a puffer fish at the Ripley Aquarium in Gatlinburg.



We went up this Sky Lift, and it was at the top that we saw the bear!

My family in front of the largest stalactite in Forbidden Cavern.


If you look closely you will see The May Queen sitting on a log in the middle of this picture. Isn't it gorgeous?We spent a lot of time in this forest.

And no vacation is complete without food. MQ enjoyed the pizza pies we cooked over the fire.
S'mores for desert!mmm.... Watermelon!

Those were lots of fun. Thanks for sharing them! (Now if only you'd shared your actual vacation. Couldn't you have brought us all along?)

I THOUGHT i recognized those mountains...this is just a few miles (like 10) from my home. We frequent these areas...isn't it gorgeous? Looks like you guys had a fun time. Sliding rock is amazing, eh? (and painful - i agree :))

Love that there's a 'keep out' sign behind the bear. And the profile (ish) shot of the May Queen in the green shirt is gorgeous.

Fun pictures! I love the ones of the May Queen building a sand castle and also looking at the puffer fish.
