Gentry Creek Falls

Today’s hike was insane … a new adventure that left me feeling extremely confident by the time we left.

We parked just outside the trail, ate a sandwich and the spotted a ton of butterflies. They were everywhere.

The trail was absolutely beautiful. There was a fast flowing creek along the path, one that we had to cross 26 times in and out of the National Cherokee Forest.

I have to say it was quite hard the first time, but on our way out it was much easier because we saw the rocks that guided us across the creek.

Time and time again Jason has me look fear in the face and beat it. He held my hand across and showed me which rocks to stand on, all while encouraging me. It was incredible really to defeat that fear of walking through rushing water of that speed.

With all the rain yesterday, the water was freezing and our feet were constantly cold throughout the walk. The perk of this of course was we were cool throughout our whole hike.

The hike of course was all worth it when we stumbled across this site …

I love seeing waterfalls, no two are ever the same. The sound of course is the best part of it all.

Today’s hike was a great adventure, one that pushed me past my own limits. I felt incredible as we made our way back out to the car.

These hikes are such a breath of fresh air, literally, because you are out in the wilderness taking everything in around you. 

Jason is an incredible hiking buddy … I love the support and the nonstop encouragement he gives me when I need it the most. Today again showed me why I love this man so much and how much he inspires me on a constant basis.

Another fabulous day, another perfect day with the man I love.
