Greetings, ATS!

I've noticed a distinct air of hostility lately between folks of different nations. I know this happens from time to time, and I fully expect it to die down eventually, but I thought a little thread sharing information about our homes might be a way to remind everyone that, in the end, we are all just people trying to live a happy life.

So here's my home, although I no longer live there. I do plan to move back one day!

The Great Smoky Mountains in Sevier County, Tennessee

Gatlinburg, the city at the entrance to the National Park



One of the top tourists attractions in the South, Gatlinburg is known as the Gateway to the Smokies. There you can find interesting shops, interesting people, and lots of traffic.

Cades Cove





A place very special to my heart, Cades Cove is an 11 mile loop road nestled in the Smokey Mountains. Before it was added to the National Park, several families lived in the Cove. When you visit, you can see their old homesteads and cabins.

I used to spend a lot of my spare time in Cades Cove, hiking and relaxing. One of my favorite hikes is to Abram's Falls.



A beautiful hike, but the falls can be deadly. Only a few years ago, a teenager on field trip to the Falls drowned while playing in the water. I've spent many a day contemplating the beauty, and danger, of these Falls.

Max Patch (a bald actually in NC)



As a child, Max Patch was relatively unknown. My family often went there for hikes, picnics, and just to let us children run loose. I always believed I could see the ocean from the top of the bald.

Now, Max Patch is part of the Appalachian Trail. It gets more traffic, but is still a beautiful place to visit.

So there you have it, ATS. My home, the places that I hold dear in my heart.

Now its your turn. Where are you from?

I had the pleasure of visiting Texas for the first time this past summer. It rained the whole time, it seemed.

We were driving through, just taking a holiday through the Southwest. We stayed overnight in San Antonio. Although it rained a LOT, I would love to visit again. Didn't really get to see everything I wanted because of the rain.

What surprised me the most about Texas was the differences in some of the scenery. Flat areas, mountainous areas, desert areas, grasslands....fascinating and beautiful in its own way.

Beyond gorgeous!

Never been to California, I always imagined it to be all Hollywood. Thanks for the education and the beautiful pic.

I love living in Southeast Texas! Here are two of my favorite spots:

The Neches River

This is where I learned to fish and swim, and where I taught my children to do both as well.

Crystal Beach

Where I learned to build sand castles and to appreciate the beauty of the sea. Still my favorite place to watch the sun rise or set and to examine seashells with my grandbaby.

I do love it here! Your neck of the woods looks beautiful as well. I'd love to spend a few days just taking in some of the architecture!

I'm surprised by your pics of Texas tho, I didn't realise it was so lush... I just thought of deserts etc so thank you for sharing this
