Day 2 - The Plan

A travel blog entry by thebusseys on Apr 12, 2015

Today the plan is, after we finish breakfast, we are going to get our photos taken using original photography equipment back from the civil war era. We will be dressed according to the period. After that, we will grab lunch to go and head down via Skyline Drive thru the mountains. Due to the weather in Charleston, SC we are no longer heading that way. We will be making our way to Knoxville, TN. Or as close as we can. Today is mostly going to be a driving ...

The whole speech was actually only 2 minutes long and is quite beautiful. ...

... This time around it was a lot busier with families and children all over the place. I missed the calmness that we had when we went during the winter, but nonetheless it was still an awesome trip. We decided to take the auto tour again as it allowed us to go at our own pace. The Visitor's Center provides maps of the entire park and is easy to navigate.

While hectic in some areas, there were times where we would walk out into ...
