Monday, about the time we arrived in Wear’s Valley, it began to snow in the mountains. The park service closed the road from Sugarlands to Newfound Gap and did not open it until Wednesday. Friday, after several days of sunshine, we decided to drive up to Newfound Gap to see if there was any snow left…and there was. So, being from a place where we rarely see snow, we stopped the car several times just to walk around in the stuff. (I know… tourists) Anyway, here’s a record of our”‘snow day”.
The best part was that it wasn’t very cold. As a matter of fact, it was forty degrees!
