“Land of the Blue Smoke”

 

Today we ventured out and went to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. It has changed since we were here last.

We walked “The Great Smokey Mountains Gatlinburg trail” today, which was picturesque to say the least and continued to walk thru Gatlinburg.

When we were here years back things like: The Ripley’s group of attractions which includes Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, which has exhibits all over the place, covering things like the Titanic, pirates, and the planet Mars, Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, Odditorium, Mirror Maze, 5D Moving Theater, Guinness World Records, Old MacDonald’s Farm Mini Golf, and Davy Crockett Mini Golf, etc. weren’t here.   We walked around town not a lot of people so we could keep our social distance.

 

Forest sure got around didn’t he!

Now I know why they are saying this about Gatlinburg “Bordering Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is an important tourist destination in Tennessee, with many man-made attractions.” I did enjoy my day in Gatlinburg was just surprised at all the new additions, I left Ripley’s out of my pics.  Times they are a changing. Tomorrow we will be going further into the Smokey’s.
