Fontana Lake Marina, situated on the 30 mile Fontana Lake in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, was one of our stops as we spent the day exploring…

 

Driving near Galinburg,  Tennessee on the Foothills Parkway…

Chimney Tops Trail, in the Smokies, where the November 2016 fire killed 14 and injured 134, has been closed. More than 10,000 acres have been destroyed.  

In Gatlinburg 2,400+ buildings and homes destroyed, all due to 2 teenage arsonists.

The  beautiful Great Smoky Mountains…

Some lichen, a dragonfly, and butterfly wings on the ground which I collected and glued into my journal..

All in all, it was a wonderful day of exploring/day trippin’.
