We thought we'd share the beauty of the Smoky Mountains. It was our third trip there. We circled the Mountains, and drove through part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I will work on the story ... the TONO thoughts later in the week ... in between work!

I couldn't believe that this place was closed. How could anyone not like to go to the NASCAR cafe. From what information I gathered it looks like it closed earlier in the year.

A second language tourist volunteered to take this picture. It'll be one of the few we took together ... so enjoy it!

The colors look so good on the side of me. This look more colorful than the other one just taken 21 minutes ago. Don't you think?
