The Great Smoky Mountains

Thursday we decided to be tourist, so we drove over the Smoky Mountains.
It was through Gatlinburg where they have all the pumpkins and fall decorations in place that makes the town look very nice.
After Gatlinburg we entered the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
When we are in the area I like to take a drive to the top and look over the mountains. When I was working and we went to Florida for our vacation it was always over the Smoky Mountains never getting tired of the scenery.
I drove on over to the North Carolina side on the way to Cherokee. The small waterfalls coming out of the mountains always makes a nice photo. There were several taking a photo of this waterfall.
We entered Cherokee saw the sign above of the ongoing play they have. We saw this play years ago and it is worth the admission so if you get a chance to see it you will not be disappointed.
We took the old route around Cherokee and came to the new route where we came to Harrah's Casino. No we didn't stop so we kept all our money.
Coming back over the mountain I took several photos of the North Carolina side.
The mountain streams were flowing slow for the lack of water.
What few fall wild flowers they are look nice.
We had a very nice day but Nancy as usual was tired to the bone by the time we got back home.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Nice pics. The leaves should be changing soon (maybe 3 weeks)and the crowds will be everywhere.

Kathy and I just love that area and travel through the park every chance we can. Unfortunately the last couple of years when we were in the area the road was still closed from winter travel.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
