Shane and I just returned from a 3 day trip to the mountains of TN. Although I am a "beach junky" (give me warm weather and sand any day!) I have to admit that I had a wonderful time. It was nice to get away. We, along with another couple, rented a cabin on the TOP of the mountain. Did I mention that I like flat land and I am not terribly fond of heights?!? We were about 3.5 miles up the side of the mountain. The views were beautiful and were worth the not-so-fun drive up (you can't really tell from the picture but that is looking over the entire town of Pigeon Forge - that's how high up we were!).
We woke up to about 3 inches of snow on Friday morning.
Once you got about halfway down the mountain there was no snow. Guess that's what they mean when they say "snow in the high elevations".
It was a great getaway, especially during this very busy time of year. Being up that high was amazing and, as was mentioned more than once, gave you the feeling that you could reach up and touch heaven. Here's hoping that sometime over this Christmas Holiday you get a glimpse of heaven!
In case I don't blog again in the next week or so, Merry Christmas from our house to yours!
