This weekend, Scout, Bailey, a friend of ours, and I went on a hike up in the Smokeys. It has finally cooled off enough to where the hours of 10am to 6pm are tolerable for outdoor recreation. We hiked up to Abram Falls, which was a beautiful hike if you are looking for one. Bailey loved her first hike and I must say, she did pretty well for 5 miles. She also loved(ish) jumping into the falls. It was a great chance to enjoy the zen of the great outdoors.
PS- Pets are apparently not allowed on trails in the Smokeys, but we didn't know till we saw the teeny sign when we got there. So if you are thinking about bringing a pet, just know they are technically not allowed though we did see some other pups along the way. Also, we picked up her poop so park rangers, please don't be mad. Look how cute she is!

Bailey the dog. (Sorry it's blurry she doesn't stand still for cameras.)
Our family at the falls. I look a bit like a goober so please forgive. I was laughing.
