Well, yesterday (February 26th 2010) was a wonderful day. It was my husband's birthday.I had planned a trip to Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountains as he had never been. In retrospect it was one of my better decisions. We had a Wonderful time. I had been there many times before, but seeing it through Kerry's eyes made a big difference. Kerry wanted to go to the highest peak (Clingmans Dome on Mt. Leconte) about 6,800 ft. up but it was blocked due to 40 ins. of snow there. We did make it to Newfound Gap which is over 5,000 feet. There was around 9 ins. of snow there...very, very cold, and very, very windy!!!!!!
We also went to the Wind Tunnel in Pigeon Forge. Kerry thought
this was very cool as he is a skydiver and he thought it would be
a great way to teach someone to skydive.
But I guess the highlight of the day (for him and me) was that on
the way home Kerry spotted a Mellow Mushroom Pizzeria. He did not know
there was one in that part of Tennessee and as I had never been we went
and I have to say it was the Bomb! They make all their dough
from natural ingredients so it is not only healthy but tastes great.
All in all it was a wonderful day and we already have plans to go back
and hike some of the nature trails there..especially one called Laurel Falls
as there is a Laurel Falls here in Rhea County that we have already hiked to.
Now back to waiting on warmer weather!
Oh, yea...we did some Go Kart racing and I kicked his tail..
(not really, although the attendent told Kerry he saw where I tried to run him over!)
