Hey everyone just wanted to share that I just took my first trip to the smokey mountains. Im staying in Maggie Valley NC. We drove up yesterday. It was 29 degrees when we got here and it was snowing 5am this morning. Our hotel overlooks a huge beautiful mountain. At 7am we drove up to Cherokee and it was 16 degrees and the snow was blowing everywhere. I finally got to where my snow boots without everyone looking at me funny. This is my first time being in the snow really. I love it up here. We are going to home some time on thursday. My soon to be inlaws are moving back up here so Im sure I will get plenty of opportunity to come back and visit this beautiful place. Maybe in a yr or so we may decide to move up here too.
