Way Over Yonder on the Cataloochee…. INTRO

—————Since I have so many pictures that I want to post, I’m going to do this in a series of posts.————-


This past Mother’s Day, I got to choose where I wanted to go. Imagine that!  Well, I’ve been wanting to wonder over to North Carolina for a couple of years now..just to visit Cataloochee.  I purchased the booklet for it up in Gatlinburg at the visitor’s center some time ago. So, I had read up on it pretty well! (or at least I thought)

We started out by loading up the cooler and the kids.  We then ventured up to Newport, TN to stop by the local Wal-mart there for some picnicing supplies. (since we didn’t know if you could cook-out or not) Then, onward we went..over the mountains and onto a new discovery!  Little did we know that the main turn off was the same one we use to go to Maggie Valley (lol).

After you get off the interstate and headed up the little (and I mean little) road, it is much more quiet.  It’s a nice little drive up to the start of the park.  There are houses dotting the roadside and a little creek to view.  It’s a good ways up there.  I actually got to thinking I had the wrong directions..til BAM..there the sign was!  I forgot to stop and take a picture I was so excited!
