Well, maybe a little poetic license but that's how some of us locals refer to it.
We're just darned lucky to have all that recreation opportunity so close. It would be a sin not to take advantage of it whenever possible!

I wouldn't say you're taking much poetic license because that is truly poetic. God has two books, the holy bible and the book of His creation and the pictures you share truly show places where one can come to know Him better. Sorry if that is more 'religious' than desired but that is exactly what those pictures make me think of

Eagles nest, Twin Mountain are a couple open year round. It is very nice, but I think River bend closes for the winter so be sure to check that. Go to www.smokymountains-rv-campgrounds.com for a good listing of options.
Good luck.

With those pics the about is an understatement.

Thanks for the idea and yes that defiantly will be put on the agenda for next year.

If you keep posting pics like that I may have to convince the wife to break ranks and go west. I believe that reference might be in a country song somewhere. Sorry about the regress, but all of us are definitely going west in the next couple of years for 3+ weeks. Now that the congress has shifted power it might be sooner than later.

While not my favorite state, Utah may be the most beautiful state in the US with everything from beautiful Mountains to desert vistas.

We named one of our current dogs Bryce, after the national park that DW and I first visited together

With that said, we just got back from the Smokeys. We enjoyed the park and the campground we stayed in. (Up the Creek). It was our first full hook up trip and the farthest we had taken the trailer from home. I would be more than happy to go back.

I have been researching Smokeys and we might just head that way. Only a handful of parks open during that time frame. Thanks for all the suggestions.

You just give us a shout when you plan to visit. Very likely we'll be planning our trips as well. Would be fun to see if we could meet up one place or another.
At the very least we'd be happy to make suggestions or answer questions.
Happy Trails!

Oh which way do we go!

There is an RV park in Sieverville, Tenn called River Plantation that is really nice. It is close to Gatlinburg and the city of Sieverville and Pigeon Forge. They can accommodate big rigs. However, I'm afraid it will be frigid in December.
