Gatlinburg Weekend.

     I just came back a couple hours ago from a fun-filled retreat with the French club at my college! My French teacher, her husband, and our French teaching assistant each drove a car filled with French students to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee for a weekend in the tourist town of Gatlinburg. It was a wonderful chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of school and a trip of a couple "firsts;" my first time in Tennessee and my first time seeing snow south of the Mason-Dixon line! Here's a few pictures of Gatlinburg:

     On the way out of Gatlinburg we took a different route, driving through the neighboring town of Pigeon Forge. Piegon Forge had more strange tourist attractions then I've ever seen in one place in my life! Here's just a few of them:

(I was especially curious about the "Biblical Times Feast" that advertised having "holograph technology." Umm what?!)

     ....And the last but not least, a picture of the most blunt sign for a store that I've ever seen in my life. While I'm definitely not a fan of adult stores, this sign made me, my French teacher and the other girls in our car laugh until we cried! Gosh... wonder what this store with the red sign sells? ;-)

     Have any of you gone on a weekend getaway lately?
