Today we took a drive into the park. We have done this trip several times over the years, but it was kind of a quiet day and we wanted to go for a ride. The biggest changes over the years have been the development of the village of Pigeon Forge, which is on the North side of Gatlinburg. When we first started coming here Pigeon Forge was so small, you would miss it if you blinked. Now its several miles of wall to wall buildings of every type.
The drive thru the park was nice and on the South side at the visitor center is a farm, made of buildings that have been moved here from other places in the park. The pictures show why these are called the "smoky's".
Linda will be heading toward her Brother's new house in Virginia on Friday and I will be "bactching it" for a week.
If you can help me with instructions on how to download pictures from Picasa onto this blog I would appreciate it.
Jim and Linda
