Throwing it waaay back today. Growing up, whenever we'd visit my grandparents over the holidays, my family would always spend a day in Great Smokey Mountain National Park. We'd bike around Cades Cove, explore the old cabins, and end up picnicking under the pines. I cherish those memories. Take your family and friends to a National Park. They'll thank you for it later . . . #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokeymountainsnationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkjourney #nationalparkservice #nps #nationalparkadventures #nationalparkusa #iloveournationalparks #goparks #weareparks #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #radparks #optoutside #outsideisbetter #hiking #hikingculture #hikingadventures #np10k #findyouradventure #seekmorewilderness #tbt
Through the ups and then the downs....I appreciate the constants that I receive in Jesus. No matter what my world looks like, I know went I go to the feet of the Father He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is Holy & complete. This gives me such a confidence in my day to day walk because I know who has my back!

We’ve had several unusually warm days in northeast Tennessee with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s. I’m trying not to get used to it since it’s still Winter, lol. Though can’t help “Dreaming of Spring” #photoart #bear #spring #smokymountains #greatsmokymountains #tennessee #bearinthewoods #woods

I am the one thing in life I can control. I am inimitable. I am an original. I’m not falling behind or running late. I’m not standing still.

A few years ago when I did study abroad, I started a blog called “Girl with a Canon” in hopes of recording some of my travels and providing helpful information and tips to other students embarking on their trips. Not only was it very time consuming but I was doubt-ridden. Thoughts like “who even cares?”, “My writing sucks”, “No one is going to read this but my mom” struck me all the time. I wrote 2 posts and I created a handful of outlines for others, but my doubt won. It’s been years since I created the blog but I told myself this year that I would post on there as a creative outlet, to keep myself focused and to be able to achieve something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ll be posting more from my past travels on @girlwithacanon and eventually my blog will be up and running again. So stay tuned 🌼

Some parts from a small steam engine left in the creek. This engine fell off the tracks nearly 100 years ago and was left where it fell - on the Grapeyard Ridge Trail here in the Smokies. . . . #REIAdventures #OptOutside #forceofnature #sweatydirtyhappy #greatsmokymountains #GSMNP #Smokies #hiking #backpacking #hikingguidelife #dayoff #injuncreek #greenbrier #trainwreck #history #hiddenhistory #dayhike #unmaintained #exploring #appalachian_explorers #ashevilletrails

There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting. □L.M.
