The Great Smoky Mountains National Park was mostly closed yesterday after a snowstorm the day before. I headed out to the Greenbrier, hoping to find the gate open, but no luck. So I parked and hiked on up the road to the point where the rocks and rapids create a popular spot in the summer for families to gather for a swim. Not today!
The Park Ranger passed by while I was walking, saying the road would not open until they could get plows up there. I spent a happy hour or two clambering around on slick rocks by the creek. Only fell once!
