We had a quick and fun trip from Atlanta to Gatlinburg, TN to visit my family from New York. Everyone decided to meet in the middle (Tennessee) to hit up Dollywood and celebrate my aunt’s milestone 80th birthday. Ever since we received the invitation in the mail, we wanted to really take advantage of the scenic drive.
Luckily one of my friends who was pretty familiar with the drive instructed us on exactly the route and even recommended a few stops. Although I was under some pressure to get back to the city to catch a plane, we made sure to stop often and enjoy. Here are a few pictures from that early morning drive.
If it happens to look cold in these pictures, it sure was. Although we’re in early July, the early morning drive included chilly temperatures in the low 40s. Pair that with the misty mountains and decent gusts of wind, you can say I definitely wasn’t dressed for this. I still got out of the car to enjoy the scenery though. Worth the risk of catching a sniffle I tell you hwut.
