Travels in Tennessee – part one

Seven years ago Spence and I were honeymooning in Savannah and Charleston.  Headed north, we took an unplanned detour into the Great Smoky Mountains via North Carolina and ended up in Gatlinburg where we stayed for a few days.

The following year we discovered a special log cabin in the mountains of Wears Valley Tennessee (via and have returned every year since.  It is secluded, surrounded by the woods, very serene and totally relaxing.  Wears Valley is located between Pigeon Forge and Townsend and we’re a mile from an entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  Seveirville and Gatlinburg are a short drive away as is Cherokee North Carolina which is a picturesque drive through the park.

There is so much to do and see here. In this post, I’m sharing the some of my favorite photos of the sky, mountains and the woods.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this, stay tuned – there’s more to come!
