Falls on Road Prong
So this weekend I decided that I wasn't going to decide anything.  That's right - I'm protesting decision making.  So, I made my husband choose the hikes and he did good!  On Saturday, we got a late start (unfortunately I had a meeting that ran late - which is the main reason I'm protesting decision making - work will do that!) but he pointed the car towards Clingmans Dome and away we went.  Just hitting the forest made the stress of the last two weeks melt away.  Then when we got to Road Prong trailhead, all was right with the world.  I love this hike in mid to late Summer - the flowers are spectacular and you get a waterfall at the end to top it all off.  It's quite a hike back up the mountain, but very well worth it.  This hike is also one steeped in history, like a lot of other hikes throughout the Smokies.  The trail was an old road used by settlers, Indians, soldiers, and everyone else in the area as the major route between the north and south ends of the Smoky Mountains.  At one point, it was even an old toll road; the charges were based on the type of traffic - pedestrian, cattle and livestock, even vehicles.  Since we got a late start, we decided to only hike as far as the first falls, but the trail continues on to Chimney Tops.  After a great hike, we headed over to Cowee Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway to try for a sunset, but it just wasn't happening there.  We packed it up and headed home, but once we got to Graveyard Fields, the sky decided to glow and provide a beautiful ending to the day after all - so glad I decided to protest decision making.  I'll have to do that more often.

I feel envious towards the relationship you have with your husband. It's been part of your routine to hike every weekend because you see it as your way of spending quality time with each other. I am glad to see that! Though it's been a last-minute plan for the both of you, what's important is you pushed through with the plan and had been to a great and magical place you never thought you could! How I wish I can be as flexible as you, guys!
