Going Nowhere

“The Road to Nowhere” in Great Smoky Mountains National Park near Bryson City, NC

Kathy & I paid a visit today to  the so-called “Road to Nowhere” in Great Smoky Mountains National Park near Bryson City, NC.  I wrote about this place in a previous post from last October (just a year ago?  Wow!).  We caught just a little bit of the end of fall color, before the bottom falls out of the thermometer in a few days.  We’ll be back home to our toasty house and our gas fireplace by then! 😉

Kathy travels to Minneapolis regularly for work – her company is headquartered there.  A few weeks ago she went and allowed me to tag along.  A group of folks that I support at work are located there, so it gave me an opportunity to meet people that otherwise I would only know by phone and email.

While we were there we took some time to get out and explore.  It was my first time there, and my first time to see the Mississippi River from somewhere other than an airplane.  Here is a baker’s dozen of my photos from that adventure.
