    I had to go home for a few weeks. I took these pics of where I am from, and thought you guys might like them. I am from a town called Newport, TN which is about 25 miles from where I took these pics. Enjoy

    The sinks in the smokies. This is where lots of people go swimming. Those are my boys jumping off that rock

    I see why you miss home, and understand too. I love those mountains.​

    Those pics bring back some memories! My parents and I went to the Smoky Mountains a couple of times on vacation, and Cades Cove is always my favourite place to visit. I think it's the most beautiful place on earth. I remember the first time we went I shocked my dad by getting up at 4am to go to the park to look for bears (i'm not a morning person). We got there by 5... only to find the park didn't open until 10 that day LOL We still saw some though!
