the trip recap

So much good happened on our trip that I don't even know where to start.

It snowed on our first night in the mountains. It was gorgeous. We had our anniversary dinner at an Italian place (tradition) which sucked (not tradition). We saw some bear and some elk and went all over the Blue Ridge Parkway and into the Great Smoky Mountains and up and down the mountain and to Cherokee where I got to see Harrah's but had no desire to actually go in. We went to several places and did some shopping and went trout fishing and I caught a bunch of trout and just generally had a marvelous time.

On Sunday we started home. But then I saw a sign that said Linville Caverns and the Linville Gorge was like half a hour ahead and Chris, bless his soul, took me to see them. We did the tour through the caverns and went on the blue ridge parkway to see the Linville Pike and it was amazing. The scenery all up there is absolutely breathtaking.

Oh... and Saturday he took me into Tennessee. Gatlinburg (which we both disliked) and through Pigeon Forge and it's the first time I had ever been in Tennessee so that was cool.

I have a ton of pictures that I will probably be boring you with over the next several days.

Now it's back to looking a place to live.
