Hello everyone Thank you for your patience, here is Day 3 of my Visiting Tennessee Series! Here is a post from Saturday, July 30 2016
So those of you read my previous post, knew that today was the day that my family and I were going to leave the hotel at 6 am, reach Cades Cove in Smoky Mountain by 7, and bike the 11 mile trail until 10. Every Saturday morning, they close off the trail to cars and open it specifically for bikers and hikers.
But, us being the sleep deprived, coffee-obsessed family that we are, we woke up at 9 (and maybe even after that) to go into Smoky Mountain that day. After eating breakfast at McDonalds (their hash browns are amazing!) we made our way into the national park.
Even though Smoky Mountain wasn’t anything like Yellowstone or the Redwood Forests, it was still a nice quiet day of driving around and enjoying scenery.
My friend said that when she went to Gatlinburg, a bear had climbed into her dumpster… whereas the most “wildlife” we saw were some Elk. Seriously though, who cares about elk? They’re basically like deer and I see a tons of deer outside our house eating away our flowers, so yeah, I hate deer.
After a long day, we headed back into town and went on the SkyLift to look over Gatlinburg and the rest of Tennessee. Fun Fact, tons of people in Gatlinburg get married on the SkyLift … so you know, it you want an inexpensive and scenic wedding, there you go 😀
We ordered dominoes for dinner once again and it was actually quite fun 🙂
I hope you all enjoyed the third post of the Visiting Tennessee Series
