We began our journey early this morning, leaving Paducah, KY around 8:30 planning to be in Townsend, TN by mid-afternoon. We grabbed a little lunch at the Fire House Grill on the way to our first stop,Fall Creek Falls just east of Spencer, TN. Since it’s been so dry in this area, there was very little water in the Creek so if you ever plan to visit this area, do so in late Spring when there is plenty of rain runoff. We walked across a rickety suspended footbridge…we were very happy to get across it! See how happy we are! Woohoo!
We followed the Trail of Tears Auto Tour and drove the Foothills Parkway. What a glorious place this is!
No wonder the Cherokee Indians loved it so.
Since we don’t have our fifth wheel bought yet, we settled into a nice hotel then headed off to hunt down some dinner and have a bit of fun! Fuddruckers burgers…CAN YA SAY, “YUMALICIOUS?” Next stop-NASCAR Speedpark in Sevierville. Oh yes, my honey HAD to race, it’s in his blood! So, only having my little digital camera I couldn’t take HIGH SPEED, HIGH ACTION pictures (and we all know how fast those go carts go) so here’s a couple of pics just to prove he did it. He raced a family he met in line and had a BLAST!
Time to get some rest and prepare for an action packed day tomorrow. Cades Cove for some hiking and bike trails!
