Day 7: Leaving. Wonderworks in Pigeon Forge. $23.99 adult, $14.99 kid = $75 (after $2 off coupon). Overnight stay in Sleep Inn Sevierville.
Pigeon Forge is about a 20-30 mins from the entrance of the Smokies. But it took us over an hour to drive from the park to Pigeon Forge because it is bumper to bumper traffic. Worked out to do it on the way out. Stayed a night in Sevierville (2km from Wonderworks). ...
... We ended up heading to a trout pond for an hour - Matt was thrilled to catch 2 trout. The owner was really nice to him - he was having trouble catching the 2nd trout (with corn kernels!) and I explained we were pressed for time.

After all this, we rejoined Phan and Thao at the motorcycle rental place and headed back for a bonfire at the cabin.
... switched to hiking shoes and hiked the waterfall trail that started right from the same parking lot. We did cut it short after an hour or so as we figured the boys would be done.
We returned to find the two men snoozing while Matt and Esen ran around them in circles. They had also found some awesome glittery iron pyrites, one in the shape of a heart, in the creek.
We would definitely go back!
