Back in Tennessee

Yesterday, we rolled into Wears Valley, Tennessee to enjoy the scenery and the people for a week.  We are staying in a cabin that we’ve not stayed in before.  Its small…with only one bedroom…and pet friendly.  (We wanted to bring Piper this time.)

 
The front yard is perfect for him to chase frisbees.

This morning we headed up to Newfound Gap to see if there was any snow left over from the weather that blew through here over the weekend.  And there was.  

  
The drive up the mountain was beautiful,

  

  
and we stopped several times to walk around

  

and to admire the icesickles.  

It was 23 degrees at Newfound Gap,

 

   

and the sky was a gorgeous  blue.

As we walked around, Piper took it upon himself to be
  
 

the “parking lot greeter”.

We stopped once on the way down the mountain for me to take a photograph …which I never got.  You see, on my way down a little embankment, I took a step and sunk up to my rear in snow.  When I finally climbed out of that, Joel asked, “Do you want to stop at another place?”  I said, “Nope, I’m over it.  Let’s go.”
