Goodbye Smokies

Today was our last day in the South.  We finally got to see from the highest point in the Smokies, Clingman’s Dome.  The view was spectacular.  After that, we saw turkeys and elk on the way home though the mountains.  This was my favorite trip that I’ve ever gone on.  Goodbye Smokies!  😭😭😭😭image

Closed on Tuesday 

Ok I’m going to start with the good news. We went gem mining. Is that not enough?  Ok I’ll elaborate we went panning for rubies and sapphires I got around 7 sapphires and 9 rubies so …😃😃😃😃😃😃😃. Now for the bad news. Can you guess what is the same with all these shops- The Creamery The Cupboard The nature center The gem museum and half of down town Franklin. Haven’t guessed yet I’ll wait…..There all closed  Tuesday 🙈  I think Tuesday is the day bears wake up and try to go to shops.
