For Thanksgiving we wanted to take our Chinese guests, Chen and Juncheng to see some more of the US. We rented a house near Bryson City, NC.
We enjoyed lots of outdoor time. This beautiful gorge is in North Georgia. Lots of stairs but totally worth it.
I tried to take a picture of all of us. Unfortunately Chen stayed up all night playing video games, so he wanted to stay in the car to sleep instead of taking on this beautiful view.
Nathan and Owen loved being out in nature.
Juncheng at the bottom of the Gorge.
Logan on the footbridge across the Gorge.
Logan and Chen hiking at Deep Creek.
Owen having fun.
Deep Creek had several water falls. This one is 80 feet tall.
Logan the Tree Hugger.
We made s'mores one evening. Everyone enjoyed them.
We wore the boys out!!! We were gone all day. Good thing the car provided a good place to nap.
At Clingman's Dome. Elevation 6,400 ft. Beautiful day with 100 + feel of visibility.
This is a pretty waterfall we found on the side of the road.
Thanksgiving dinner. Preston, Logan and I made the entire spread. It was yummy and Chen and Juncheng enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving feast. Logan made our hats at home before leaving for our trip.
Logan made our pineapple casserole.

The house we rented.
On our way home we stopped at Brenau just for fun. We snapped this picture and thought it was a great shot of the family.
