OK, this was the coolest vacation ever. We actually stayed put for 2 1/2 days and this is where we stayed put. Believe it or not this was our first "cabin" experience. I loved being on the mountain and exploring our little piece of the mountain. The cabin was only a couple of years old and had all the modern conveniences such as laundry, dish network, dish washer and a terrific view as you will see in a future posting.
From here we explored Smoky Mountain National Park. The only issue was getting through Gatlinburg. You would think they were giving something away there, it was SO crowded. We stayed on the less popular northeast side of town about eleven miles out from city center and it was wonderful and not crowded at all.
This picture was taken on the farm on the Cherokee side of the park. The National Park Service had a small flower bed and a large garden planted on the farm.
So many things to show and tell about. That is it for today though so have a great Monday.
