I lost my little mind for a while yesterday. :O

I promised Abby and Daniel that I would walk up to our little waterfall before the snow melted.

It’s an icefall right now.

Since we were already halfway there, we decided to go on up to the Foothills Parkway (the cold air must have went to my brain).

We made it! Of course, my little mountain boy was first to the top…Daniel, “Momma! I found human tracks and they’re not mine! And vehicle tracks!”.

Walking toward Wears Valley…Cove Mountain.

Back up the other direction…we thought that this is Clingmans Dome, but after checking our maps we believe it might be Thunderhead Mountain (if anyone knows for sure, please let me know).
