Today's drive took in the Blue Ridge Parkway, part of the Appalachian Mountain Range. We were going to just take the interstate but Lynn at the house we stayed at suggested it. We had some amazing views, saw a deer and a beaver (but no bears - sad face).

The journey ended up being a lot longer but it was worth it for the scenery. We hit Knoxville at drinking
hour, had a swim in the pool, then headed to a bar for some drinks and stumbled home at 1am. Good times!
