It has been raining a lot in south east Tennessee. A LOT. Honestly I love the rain. When I lived in Florida one of the things I missed the most was the rain. I love the way we get kind of socked in and it will rain for days. That being said, I do enjoy getting out and exploring after several days of rain. This morning there was the most amazing fog and it seemed dry. The boys and I decided as adventure was in order. Jason, unfortunately, was going to be busy with work all day. We took a chance and headed out to Red Clay State Park. Half way to the park the sun came out and I knew we made the right choice. Red Clay was one of the last councils spots of the Cherokee and it just has this magic and mystical feel. There is a lovely 2 mile hike called the 'Council of the Trees.' There is just something peaceful and reverent about this place. And today, after a week of rain it was extra enchanting. Everything was damp, green and bursting with life. It was just what our souls needed.
