When I was young Jim Stafford explained that “All good things gotta come to an end,” and it’s was the same with our wonderful weekend trip. We always enjoy visiting the Great Smoky Mountains. It’s a peaceful and beautiful place.
Some visit the area for shopping, others for the food and entrainment. Some never even venture into this beautiful and historic park. I can’t imagine such. I won’t even attempt to understand their reasoning here, other than to say that I guess that it may be similar to the reason that I have never attended a show in the area. For us, there are few things as rejuvenating to one’s spirit as getting away into God’s creation, and this is usually the reason for our trips.
As we left the valley on our way back to our cabin outside of Gatlinburg, we pulled off the small winding road to enjoy viewing the Cataloochee Sunset.
