It was a ridiculously warm day after Christmas and so the Grunwalds sought to take advantage of the warm weather by going for a hike. We decided to head over to Hawkins County to check out the waterfalls at Laurel Run Park. I figured with all the rain we've had the past 3 days the falls should really be flowing. What I didn't take into consideration was that with all the rain, the trail would be impassable. And so after hiking an extremely muddy trail, we found an un-bridged creek crossing and had to turn around before reaching the falls. We did play on the playground though, and on the way home saw a roadside waterfall we had missed on the way to the park: Bays Mountain Falls.
