Smoky Mountains Hiking Abrams Falls
Finally hiked to Abrams Falls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with my girlfriend Kendra! It took us about 90 minutes to get to the Falls because we took photos, and enjoyed the trail. It is amazing that such beauty is here and preserved for our enjoyment. If you have never been to the Smoky Mountains, I highly recommend you visit. We were there May 3rd, and there were thousands of Monarch Butterflies (Danaus plexippus) flying around all over the park. As you can see in the video, we stopped at the river to take a photo, and I spotted a group of them at the river bed. Pretty cool sight. I can remember as a boy that hundreds of these butterflies would gather at our house on a mimosa tree, but I've never seen those great numbers again except in the National Park.
If you've been to the Smoky's please share your story in the comments below, you can do so without signing in.
Hope you enjoyed the video!
