Yep, they look "smokey." My son, Dan, took this picture on one of their sightseeing jaunts. I believe it's part of the Cade's Cove drive. An historical area. I understand you just drive through it. I didn't go 'cause once I drive that many miles to get somewhere, I really don't have a hankerin' to get back in the car.
To answer a few questions...
- Yes, the cabin is for rent- along with several other very nice ones. Just look up http://www.topoftownsend.com/ and they'll hook ya up.
- I think several of the cabins are open, year-round. It would be fun to go in the winter time- cool enough to be fun, mild enough to not be miserable.
- It's near Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. But don't hold that against them as they are on the quiet side of the mountain. If ya like traffic jams and hokey entertainment, well, that's just a few twisted miles away.
Well, Happy 4th of July to you guys! I am home, baking sample wedding cakes. No, not a traditional way to celebrate the patriotic holiday, but as good a way as any to celebrate the middle of the week... They're lookin' and smellin' pretty good, if I do say so myself. A traditional white cake with almond frosting. A white cake with lemon filling and vanilla frosting. And a lemon cake with vanilla frosting. Wonder which one they'll choose? And I am pinning a quilt onto the frame. How's that for multi-tasking?
