A demonstration of beginning carvers in downtown Knotsville.  We also enjoyed a couple bluegrass or country rock bands during a lunch concert that was being broadcast live on a public radio station.  Very cool

A real live Dukes of Hazard Museum in Gatlinburg!  We didn’t even get out of our car in Gatlinburg!  It was the Friday of Fall Colors and you would have thought we were driving downtown Disneyland!  You couldn’t walk, you couldn’t drive!  This is the entrance to Smokie Mountain NP.  The park was packed also, but nothing like the tiny town!  We finally found a nice trail along the river and took a walk.

It's FALL!

It’s FALL!

Everyday it gets more beautiful!

I have been enjoying the fall colors for 2 weeks with my sunglasses and finally Paul had a look!

Two days later and a small rain storm, but still beautiful colors.  Paul thinks the color here is better than anything he ever experienced in the Northeast.

Throughout Smokie Mountain National Park there are old structures.  We saw a school, several churches, lots of log homes. SMschoolhouse

It was still a bit rainy but oh so beautiful.  You will have to visit yourself in late October.
