Great Smoky Mountains & Pisgah National Forest

A couple of weeks back I took a trip down to North Carolina to visit my friend and escape the city bustle. It was boring in that there isn't much going on where my friend was living. But that made it oh so more wonderful. And relaxing. It was quite nice; we adventured like the good ole times. 
The Great Smoky Mountains from the top of Chimney Top Mountain.
We visited the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and casually hiked up Chimney Top Mountains. Chimney Top Mountains has this bare rock top with a very angled and jagged slope that was quite fun to climb. Mountains are surreal. They're just so old and there. I love to just sit/stand there in awe and take it all in. They're very giving.

Caught this gorgeous sunset somewhere in Great Smoky Mountains. Ahh, just look at those layers!
So the national parks services are celebrating their centennial! It's kind of a great reminder that we have these beautiful parks to explore. I believe POTUS Obama is also hitting the rounds and has visited a bunch of the parks during his presidency. There are tons of parks, big and small, some more forest and some more history. So yeah, check them out! We also went waterfall hunting in the land of waterfalls, aka the Pisgah National Forest. Nature. =]

This is the popular Looking Glass Falls

All and all, it was a great trip. More pictures here
