Fall foilage

At the present time, we are having a dry season, which determines the colors, hopefully it will rain a little over the next two months for better results. If you travel up I89 in nh/vt some of the best views are off the main roads. The colors will take your breath away. Enjoy the ride

Not sure the size rig you're pulling but be aware of restrictions on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we just got back from a week just south of the Smokey Mountain National Park..we have a toy hauler (19wp) we parked at a motorcycle camp/resort and put 1500 miles on the Harley in 6 days...there are VERY low tunnels and very twisty, narrow parts of the parkway...I'd get online and see if you can find the height restrictions...we didn't pass any large rigs while we were on the parkway...we camped a few years back at the Cherokee KOA, clean and close to everything...a must see in Cherokee is "Unto These Hills" all about the Cherokee Indians other than that I would steer clear of Gatlinburg...very touristy

Gatlinburg is for walking, they do have a motor trail that is nice to drive, also twice a week if you get there early enough you can see the lamas. They resupply the lodge inside the park, Mount LeConte. It's interesting to watch them load the lamas, you can also walk to the lodge that way, it's the easiest way but the longest. There is a lot of fun things to do in Gatlinburg and good places to eat

This is off the original poster's question, but the previous post mentioned they now use llamas to supply the lodge on Mt. LeConte. Previously, all food, beverages and housekeeping supplies were carried by backpack. A former co-worker and his friends spent a summer packing to the lodge every day. They were in great shape when they returned to college that fall.
