For so many years I kept telling myself that I would travel when I finally had a partner that liked to travel too. WELL... I have so many friends that are down to travel so I stopped waiting for what I initially had in mind.
When my dad retired a few years back he took my sister and I along for some adventures - Yosemite National Park - Yellowstone - The Grand Canyon! And this past year I took an excursion with one of my besties to Acadia.
Our National Parks are amazing & I've decided to work my way through as many as I can!
For 2019 I've decided on visiting Smoky Mountain National Park - I've started my initial plotting and so far I'm thinking ...
Fly into Asheville and spend a day... I've wanted to visit Asheville NC to see the Biltmore Mansion and check out the Blue Ridge Parkway!
From there head to Gatlinburg TN to shack up for a few nights and explore the park -
Points of Interest - Cades Cove, Newfound Gap, Clingman's Dome Roads, Rainbow Falls, Grotto Falls - I plan on hiking some of the trails around these points of interest and would love to take a horse out through Smokemont Riding Stables.
Planned time period - I'd love to go in Mid April to early May when the wildflowers are out in full force!
If you have any tips for hitting the Smoky's send them my way!
Check out some of my photos from trips past!
