Last weekend we took a trip up the mountains of NC and TN. The fall colors were not quite at peak but were still beautiful and the weather was pretty much perfect. We took a drive through Great Smoky Mountain National Park, spent a night in Knoxville, drove the Cherohala Parkway and spent a night in Cherokee (losing a little at the casino). It was a rejuvenating trip for sure.
