Tubing the Little River

Between round one and two. Posing on the river.

Notice the creative putting style...
Move over Arnold Palmer!

Today was a beautiful day, so Adam and I decided to go inertubing down the Little River just 20 miles from our house. We needed some sunshine and some time outdoors, so this seemed to be the perfect escape. Since both of us are a little adventurous (maybe too adventurous), we chose the "adventure" route which is on a rough portion of the river. There are multiple sets of rapids on this course, and all were healthy in light of recent rains. We did the 90 minute flota twice. I managed to get "dumped" 3 times, while Adam only had the privilege to experience it once. Needless to say, we are both bruised up (mostly on the shins) and pretty sore! Despite the rough water though, we had a really good time and it was nice to relax for a few hours without worrying about work. We ended the day by going into Gatlinberg for dinner and 2 rounds of mini-golf. (We each won one game.) Now, it's time for bed! Here are a few photos of our day.
