Wet Bottoms Trail

After our epic hike on Monday, we were not in any shape for anything too ambitious for the rest of the week.  However, we were feeling the for a bit of activity, so we decided to check out Wet Bottoms Trail in Cades Cove. This is a 1 mile long trail that connects Cooper Road trail with the Abrams Falls trail. It would be a great trail to take small children on. Grandkids, are you listening? Parts of it would probably be stroller friendly, but not the whole thing. For such a short trail, there is a lot to see.  You pass by a  barn, the Elijah Oliver homestead, and finish at the Abrams Falls trailhead, where there is a nice stream to cool your feet.  An added bonus was the beautiful rhododendron blooming.
 This was an upscale cabin with several glass windows and multiple rooms.

Looks like you are certainly enjoying your time in Tennessee.

I started the The Kitchen House the other day. Great book. Thanks for sharing it with me.
