We're off for another mountain adventure

Wifey and I pose for traditional picture at Great Smoky Mountains
A summer trip with relatives, that didn’t pan out, has been rescheduled for next week.

That means another trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, our third this year.

This time of year it is suppose to be a little bit cooler. Nighttime temperatures this past summer at Elkmont Campground were in the low to mid 60s.

Next week, nighttime temps are expected in the 50s, which is OK with me.

It will be more of the same kind of activities, as usual, but just being in the park is enjoyable in itself.

We’ll take our traditional picture at one of the big signs entering the park and manage to relive the same “old” things — Cades Cove, hiking trails, Gatlinburg and a visit to Townsend for ice cream.

Hopefully, downtown Gatlinburg will still have a good offering of blue grass music.

We be out of touch a lot of the time, since there is no wi-fi in the park and sometimes we can’t get to it on a good schedule outside the park. So it will be a few weeks before we'll see you again.

Next post: Sept. 29, 2014
