NIMBioS Fall Hike: Grotto Falls and Brushy Mountain

Smokies-fall 116One of the great perks of working at NIMBioS is the number of folks who love to get outside and climb up mountains together. On Saturday, NIMBioS friends and families ventured into the beautiful autumnal scenery in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a hike on Trillium Gap Trail to Grotto Falls and Brushy Mountain. Smokies-fall 016The waterfall was a perfect for those wishing to do a short hike, while some of us continued on to the top of Brushy Mountain. We finished the day by gathering for post-hike refreshments at the Fox & Parrot British tavern.
