Trip through a tunnel

I thought I would video our trip through the tunnel and down the parkway from Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge

Bike Trip to the Mountains

Thursday, we left and rode the bike to Pigeon Forge. When we left it was raining, just a little, it quit pretty soon. We stopped at Smokey Mountain Harley-Davidson, we needed to stretch our legs. From there we went on in to Pigeon Forge. The leaves were really pretty this weekend.
On Friday we did a lot of riding. The weather was Great!!! In the valley it was about 75 degrees in the afternoon, but we decided to ride to the top of the mountain between Gatlinburg and Cherokee and the temperature dropped drastically when we go closer to the top. When we got to the top, we had to put on coats and gloves!!!
Saturday was not such a nice day. We came home in the rain! And it rained almost all the way home. Even with rainsuits, we were still wet, and cold. Three hours of riding in the rain is not really a lot of fun, but that's okay, the other two days were wonderful and we had a great time.
Looking forward to our next trip!
Hope you enjoy the pictures, this is just a small portion of what I took.

Papa made this while we were riding down the mountain!

At the top of the mountain!

One of the tunnels going up the mountain!

The sun shining through the trees made it seem like the trees were glowing!

The ridge at the Welcome Center in Gatlinburg.

The colors were awesome!

Nana ready for the ride!

It was pretty chilly Friday morning, but the day warmed up and it was very nice for riding!

Leaves Falling Like Rain

The Tree is Finally Gone!!!

The tree that did the damage to our mobile home is finally gone. Only half of it fell, so we have been waiting on someone to come and take down the other half of the tree, I was so glad Monday afternoon when they got it on the ground. It also had a hollow place in it, so it could have come down at any time. Very grateful it didn't fall on the house or the storage building.
