Mingo Falls

My family and I took a trip four years and nine days ago that is still deeply ingrained in my memory. We went to the Smoky Mountains to enjoy a weekend away from everything and spent most of our time on hiking trails to find waterfalls and look at the beauty of nature.

This particular waterfall that we went to see, Mingo Falls, is quite large and the walk to it is rather difficult. It’s a very long stairway to get there and it’ll leave your muscles sore.

But, in the end, the long walk is so very much worth it to behold this sight up close and to feel the cool mist of the water.

I am grateful for such experiences and memories, especially at this stage of my life, because it is proof to myself that I can do anything I set my mind to accomplish.

To see the bigger picture and the beauty as well as experince things you never thought you would lay your eyes on, keep moving forward no matter what stands in your way.

Be it your own thoughts or a big stairway.

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend and much love to you all.

  1. Great memory. I have climbed Mt. LeConte in the Smokey’s several times and it always feels like an accomplishment to reach a peak. My husband actually proposed to me on Mt. LeConte so it holds a special place in my heart. I have never been to Mingo Falls though. We are going to the Smokey’s in June. I’ll look it up. Thanks for the tip.
