My sister Bonnie and her husband David and I recently traveled to Pigeon Forge, TN to vacation with my sister Betty and her husband Keith at their favorite spot in the Smoky Mountains. Here are a few memories from our drive there. I'll break the vacation up into more than one post because of the number of pictures .... (click photos to enlarge for better views. I didn't do much editing of these photos ... only what was available through Picasa).
.... everything is somewhere else, and you get there in a car
.... it rained the entire way down to Tennessee. But the redbud trees were in full bloom and they made the drive beautiful
.... a brief stop at Luray Caverns, where Gary and I went on our honeymoon more than forty years ago
... redbud trees in bloom just outside the Luray Caverns entrance
... who can resist photographing a little girl admiring a little dog?
... to pass the time in the vehicle, I enjoy taking pictures of houses (through the windshield) ... we had a very brief respite from the rain
my dream car .... some day! (sigh)
Bonnie and David .... taken at a rest stop somewhere in Virginia
... rest stop blossoms
Tennessee ..... yay! (and it was STILL raining)
Hurrah! The offices of Hidden Mountain Resort, less than a mile from our final destination!
