Narnia part two

 Last spring me and my family went to Gatlinburg Tennessee for a long weekend and even though it was the end of April we were pleasantly surprised by snow at the top of Clingman's Dome.  Yes it looked like Narnia.  Well  this past weekend we returned there wanting to see the Smokies in Fall array and went for another drive towards the higher elevation . This is what we saw!  Snow beautiful, Christmassy, fluffy, white snow!
 So, what are the odds of this happening to us again??  We were ecstatic!  This is me and my awesome snowball makin husband!
 The day we arrived it was chilly and Fallish, leaves twirling downward in the wind.  Apple dumplings at the Apple Barn started our mini vacation with a bang. Me and my daughter Christina in front of a stream across from the "Apple Barn"
 Two days later, THIS!  This is me and my daughter Jenny.
At lower elevations it was still Fall!  My son in law Suj and Kavi outside "Santa's Claus-et"
This is after we descended from Narnia back to the land of Autumn!
The cabin we all shared had a wood burning fireplace that made the stay especially cozy and made up for the concave mattress in me and Ray's room, the poop-like aroma in my daughter Christina's room and the scary, scary twisty and steep road up to it!

Seriously though Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains national Park is my favorite place to go!  If you haven't been there go there!  Gather a bunch of family to chip in and get a cabin!!  You will love it!
