Hello from Hot, Hot, Hot, Tennessee. :) The temperature hit 102 degrees with a real feel of 108 and so what did we do? Spend most of the day outside of course! Since it is currently 2 in the morning, and I am exhausted, I will just give you the highlights. We hiked in the Smokey Mountains up to Rainbow Falls, ate lunch at Corky's BBQ (yum!), did a little more shopping, and went to the Tennessee Smokies Baseball game. (They won, we sat in the equivalent of the Reds Diamond Seats, and it was Fireworks Friday...what more can you ask for? Oh yeah, a cooler night!) :) We got back to the dorms around 11 and everyone took a cool shower and got a bag to put their clothes/toiletries they would need for after rafting. I'll try to post pictures in the morning before we leave. (Like the ones of the bear we were eight feet away from! Yikes!) Remind me to tell you all about the Orca/Okra incident also. :) We watched the weather back home all day and are praying for all of those without power and/or storm damage to their homes. We hope you are all safe! Blessings on your night/morning!
