Amazing, memorable day!

We had a fantastic day! Our guide Matt was friendly and knowledgeable! The weather went from hot and muggy to rainy and cold so be prepared. Lol I grew up here and I had forgotten how quickly things can change in the mountains! We definitely will go on another adventure. Breath taking beauty. Home:) ❤️
