I love hiking, tubing and just about anything that involves the great outdoors! On this beautiful summer day, my husband and I were hiking along one of the rivers in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Ridge Mountains. The trail was void of hardly any hikers, and we were pleasantly surprised to come across this family who had been tubing along the river. We are fortunate to have so many outdoor activities available to us here in Northeast Tennessee and Western North Carolina... Nothing like a hike in the great outdoors to clear the mind and soothe the soul.
