Winter in the Great Smoky Mountains and Gatlinburg, Tennessee
We are continuing our trip home to Ohio through the Great Smoky Mountains.
We had come looking for snow on this trip and we sure found some this day.
After the snow there had been some warm days to allow for some of it to melt...
...and form this beautiful ice on the side of the mountains.
Although it is still Winter, it is clear Spring is just around the corner.
We are at a lower elevation now where the ground is soft and ready for Spring to move into the forest.
This is an overlook above Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Driving through the city probably wouldn't have been too bad this time since it is the off season, but had we done that, we would have missed this view. We were here last November when the Fall colors were brighter...
...but this time we could see much more through the trees. The sunlight was perfect this day.
And, this tram is something we had never seen up here before.
I don't know if this one is new or...
...we just missed it when we have been here before.
Soon we were down from the mountains where the weather was warmer. Here we are going through Pigeon Forge. We didn't stop this time.
I hope you'll join us tomorrow for the last leg of our trip to Cincinnati.
