A little nature never hurt anyone, but part two of our road trip saw crap tons of nature courtesy of our cabin nestled in the mountains of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This, of course, was Kevin's idea and being the good wife that I am I went along for the ride and barely complained at all. While I'm not exactly an outdoorsy gal, our cabin's balcony hot tub had me rethinking my position on countryside living. And now onward to photo set number two entitled "And the good times keep comin, holy crap is that a snake?!"
These shots were taken right before our decade anniversary dinner date. You would think that this small town would be pretty dead, but once you make your way out of the mountains its another huge tourist trap as many folks visit in the good weather months to take advantage of nearby Dollywood. Accordingly, our restaurant pickins were slim and we had to make due with a chain eatery filled with fanny pack clad visitors which made me a tad overdressed in my sparkly get up. Story of my life.
The weather was not kind to us when we made our way through the Cherohala Skyway which made for cloudy photos and scary driving conditions, but we survived and even manged to get a few decent shots of the beautiful landscapes.
The poor weather continued forcing us to partake in indoor activities like a morning session at the arcade where I unknowingly gave the finger to my competitor/photographer/husband. Whoops.
That about does it for Pigeon Forge, TN. The town certainly has quirks and I just loved all the ample amounts of Southern politeness, but my real goal for this trip was Nashville and boy did it deliver. More on that tomorrow.
