Fishing the Day Away (and Night) April 28, 2012


I have been so busy with work I haven’t been able to do ANYTHING for months. Finally, the project I have been working is finally over, thus means I’m jobless, but now I have free time and that means a lot to me right now.

My husband, my brother-in-law and I decided to go fishing Saturday in Dandridge, TN. It was a hot spring day and very windy and I didn’t catch anything but a sunburn 🙂 We decided to head back toward Knoxville and fish on the Holston River. There my husband caught the little red eyed guy below, but still nothing was really taking our bait. We headed to Barley’s in the Old City for some drinks and dinner. After sulking about our day we decided to give it one more try. At 11:00 at night we head to the Tennessee River to get our line wet, great decision. We were catching fish right and left. We stayed on the river until 1:00 and then called it a night.

This was my catch of the day – Tennessee Tarpon

I felt so good to be outside. I can’t describe how it feels to be in an office for 60 + hours/7 days a week not getting to see your friends or family. I never want to be married to a job again.

Hiking The Rainbow Falls April 15, 2012


The Rainbow Falls Trail is one of several that will take you to the top of Mt. LeConte and is also the oldest or earliest route to LeConte. The trail can be challenging, but also offers an intermediate reward in that it affords the hiker a rest at the beautiful Rainbow Falls.

The Rainbow Falls Trail is fairly challenging if completed all the way to Mt LeConte. Allow an hour and a half to Rainbow Falls and four hours to Mt LeConte. Hikers will gain nearly 4,000 feet in elevation by the time they get to Mt. LeConte.
