A Smoky Sunrise…

This Memorial Day,  I had the pleasure of visiting Pigeon Forge just outside of Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  Surrounded by the Great Smoky Mountains, this town’s essential to any vacation or weekend getaway for couples or the entire family.  From activities like ziplining and hiking; to helicopter rides and miniature golf there are tons of activities guaranteed to keep everyone engaged.  Along the Parkway adventures like Dollywood and Wonder Works are festive bonuses to this remarkable resort city.  Seated nearby is the Great Smoky Mountain National Park,  the largest area east of the Rocky Mountains that protects a rich history of wildlife, nature, and Appalachian ancestry.  Most of my time was spent soaking in the sun  and clean air of this abode. This was one trip I am glad I tagged along my Nikon just before exiting the door to capture a little bit of the natural essence in Tennessee.

I am definitely looking forward to a trip back to the Smokies!
