Hiking trip to Greeter Falls, Tennessee

My husband and I live in the great state of Tennessee and there are many things to do here, like hiking.  One of our favorite places to visit is Greeter Falls, which is in Beersheba Springs, Tennessee.  Beersheba Springs is in Grundy County and the county we live in lies beside it.  I remember very well the first time I visited this place.  A good friend of mine had taken me on a roadtrip and I had no idea where we were going.  I had no idea that our roadtrip would take us to a place where I experienced a feeling that was spiritual.  I have lived in Tennessee all of my life and never seen a place as beautiful as Greeter Falls.

I introduced my husband to Greeter Falls not long after we were married in 2004.  He was amazed at the waterfalls, the swinging bridge and the wildlife.  I scratch my head when I think that we have lived beside Grundy County all our lives and never knew of Greeter Falls and the beautiful scenery God has given us to enjoy.

These pictures are from different hikes and we have visited Greeter Falls numerous times with friends and family.

Kayaking! Oh, what fun…..

On June 22, 2014, we went on our very first kayaking trip to McMinnville, Tennessee (which isn’t far from where we live) and floated on the Collins River and Barren Fork River.  We have been floating the Elk River before in a flat bottom boat but never in kayaks.  All I can say is “WOW”!!!  What a fun, adventurous, and wild ride we had and I’ve told my dear husband (Brian) that I’m craving to own a kayak now.  So, I’m sharing some of our pictures of this amazing trip.
