The Smoky Mountains in the Fall!

     We spent Halloween in Gatlinburg! We've been helping Maggie and the kids for a few weeks and we decided to run away from home! We sent the grandkids Halloween cards with money and we hit the road! The colors were beautiful and we drove to Clingman's Dome and Newfound Gap. Had a lovely picnic at the Chimneys and played in the river. Did the Roaring Forks motorway and stopped at Eli's Mill. Found a quaint little seafood bar off the beaten track and had oysters, shrimp, and too much to drink! A wonderful time!! We decided to ride the aerial tram to Ober Gatlinburg and we took the skylift to the very top of the mountain. Then we rode the Alpine Slide down to the bottom! I won! Brian said he was being a gentleman! :-)
