Of Mountains and Such


Last Monday, I had just got back from our gorgeous trip to Tennessee. Infact, I had miraculously received two extra days off at the last minute so I could stay with my sister and brother in law for a few days before all of us met up at a little cabin in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
We were setting out on the deck eating our first supper together when we noticed the mountains in the distance were turning a really weird pink color. So I brought out my camera in time to catch this sunset. 




I don't think I've ever really played a game of pool in my life, but there was a pool table in our cabin. And let me tell you... it quickly became a new favorite game of mine :)


One evening we went into the miniature theater room and watched a compilation of home videos from my Dad's side of the family. I'll be honest and say that I cried a few times when I would see videos of my Dad's father. He looked like a man that I would have loved to know :')


Leaves were already falling just a little bit up in the mountains :)





This was one of those shots that I was anticipating taking the whole trip. When I finally saw the old Mill, I made no hesitation to walk down there, wade in the water, and set up my tripod for this shot. My family joined me down there soon after, and when I got out of the water where I could hear them... they pointed to a sign that advised to stay out of the water due to high bacteria levels. Oops. Well, it's a week later and I'm feeling just fine... ;P


Family :)


And family, plus a little one on the way :D

We had just been to the first ultra sound for the little one and found out that they're going to have a little boy! We're all so excited :D




Our very last evening there, we travelled up to Clingman's Dome.
It was too foggy at the top of the mountain to see more than a few yards, but the drive up there was certainly gorgeous!

And on our way back down, we stopped at an overlook to watch the night sky.


Thanks for stopping by :)
