It is definitely starting to feel like fall here in the Smokies!  With the cooler temperatures setting in and the days becoming shorter, the leaves are starting to turn those beautiful fall colors we all love!  The lower elevations are still pretty green, but up in the higher elevations you can see the early colors coming out. It will still be a couple weeks before the peak colors here in the Smokies, but we can tell now that it won’t be too long!  To get a better look at these wonderful fall colors, try taking a hike in the Smokies.  The Chimney Tops trail is a fun 4 mile round trip that takes you high up in the Smokies with a breathtaking 360-degree view!

Saturday, October 10, Cades Cove will be hosting a two-hour stargazing program beginning at 7:30 p.m. as long as the weather cooperates.  This event is being held in cooperation with the Smoky Mountain Astronomical Society, where experienced astronomers with telescopes will be available to point out the position of the stars, galaxies, and constellations.  If you are interested in attending it is suggested that you park near the exhibit shelter at the entrance to the Cades Cove Loop Road where a ranger will then escort a group to the nearby field.  Those planning to attend should dress warmly and bring a flashlight, blanket or chair to sit on, and binoculars if you have any.  If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to call 865-448-4104.

Laughing until we had tears. I’ve never seen anything like the look on my kids’ faces when we drove down the Parkway past Pigeon Forge attractions. Our hotel was so vibrant and the staff was upbeat and helpful. Pigeon Forge is the brightest spot in the Smoky Mountains. The high energy (and clean language) shows we saw in theaters had everyone in my family clapping their hands…even “sour” Uncle George.
