Trip Report The Great Smoky Mountains Trip Report Oct.9th-Oct.17th. 2011

Jump to last reply

My husband and I went to Gatlinburg and The Great Smoky Mountains for vacation and the Fall leaves were very pretty. We went to Cades Cove, Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail and over to Cherokee,NC and had a wonderful time. The leaves towards Clingmans Dome and the TN/NC line are at peak and alot of oranges,reds,yellows,purples and the weather was also very nice. We ate at our favorites restaurants like, Howards Steakhouse,No Way Joses Mexican,Pancake Pantry,Apple Valley,Old Mill,Best Italian,Little Princess in Cherokee to name a few. We saw a total of 10 Black Bears and countlesss Deer,Turkeys in and around the area. We rented a cabin called Rippling waters thru Alpine Chalet Rentals and it was really nice and sat right on a river and the sounds were very relaxing. This was our 2nd trip this year and we are going back again for Christmas. Here is a few pictures of our trip. Check out the videos too. The leaves were so pretty and I think we were there at the right time.
