Last week we took a mini-vacation to Gatlinburg, TN to spend some time in the mountains. The trip up was absolutely gorgeous, as mid October is usually the peak week for the leaves to turn.
As the elevations got higher, the fog set in.
I love the smoky mountains, from the creeks and rivers, to the rocky sided mountains, to the beautiful leaves.
You can see for miles on a clear day.
We climbed higher and higher into the mountains, seeing more colors as we drove.
Natural beauty is everywhere in these mountains. You don't have to look far for it.
Once we reached our destination, everything was beautifully decorated for fall and the fall holidays.
We made a much needed stop to the Apple Barn in Pigeon Forge. If you've never been...you MUST go!
Not only is the whole place beautiful, with orchards, great buildings, and lots to see. But the food is AMAZING. Real country cooking the way it should be, and lots of it.
We had so much fun on our little road trip. More pictures to come....
