There Are Greater Things Ahead Than We Leave Behind

My family and I hiked the Rainbow Waterfall Trail at Smoky Mountains National Park. We reached the waterfall which was beatiful, but we noticed the trail continued on. We asked the guide and told us the trail kept going but not a lot of people continued on. He also told us some of the oldest trees in the Smokies were further up the trail. This is a shot of beginning of the next part of the trail that lead deeper into the woods.
