July 11th – 13th 2014
What a great two days spent in this part of the world! I had zero expectations when I took my first ever solo road trip to meet a dear friend in this city! My little research indicated this was a college town which had no bearing on me whatsoever. Having no expectations worked in my favor as there was no chance I’d be disappointed. A three hour drive there was bearable.
My host had planned a slew of activities to keep me entertained and boy did she go all out! I had a chance to visit Pigeon Forge and partake in some old timey photos at Wild Gals Old Time Photos. Something I have always wanted to do. I love being in costume! A little too much:) We took a sky lift ride in Gatlinburg. We drove up to the top of the great Smokey Mountains. The drive was incredibly scenic! We later took a short ride on a helicopter and caught awe inspiring views of the mountains. Our pilot was a great guide and did a few stunts in the air! Did I mention that I am am deathly afraid of heights?!
The trip was short and very sweet indeed! I would go back to visit without hesitation!
