Fantastic Side Trip!
It will take a couple posts to get tell about the side trip we took. I couldn't believe Gary offered to do this, but we drove 14 miles of narrow, winding, unimproved road - as it says above - through the Smokies. It was fantastic! We saw the mountains as only the hikers see the mountains - without hiking.

The wildflowers were spectacular! Unfortunately, I'm not a very good photographer, so you will just have to take my word that they were gorgeous - and so abundant!
About 1/3 of the way, there was an overlook. Shortly after this picture, the rains came. It was only raining at the top of the mountain. As we came back down, the rains cleared off and the sun came back out!
This is the view from the overlook heading back down the road. Hard to tell from the photo, but the left side of the road literally disappears just to the left of those trees. It is quite a drop-off!
