Great Smokey Mts - 6 JAN 2008

This is the second time in two months I’ve been next to the “Great Smokey Mountains National Park” and both times it was cloudy and rainy. 
This time TW and I made a short detour regardless of the weather, discovering this great town, Gatlinburg. Sort of a mini Tahoe only the place was dry since it looked like they don’t make their own snow which is what we have to do in California. It has ski lifts, shops, restaurants, galleries and even a Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum.
We made it to Raleigh by 7:30 PM (EST). Tomorrow, I start work and TW is on his own.
