The most beautiful view that I’ve ever seen, has got to be Tennessee — the mountains are so beautiful. One you get far enough into north Georgia, you start to get into mountain country, and the trees start to grow thicker all around. Further into Tennessee, it just gets better. And of course, there’s always the great smoky mountains 😉

I remember when we were in Tennessee for my brothers wedding, it was a royal pain to take the trip up; but the sights were well worth it. We were out in Sevier County (Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Gatlinburg), and then we made the trip home through the smoky’s. Wish I had a picture like what I see in my minds eye, but if we took any of the mountains, it’s probably still in the camera (on 110 film lol). The trees were in a multitude of colours, beautiful reds, oranges, browns, and even some greens; so it must’ve been during Autumn that we were there. Reese and Gail married about 1999, and divorced last year, I’ve never actually bothered to remember the date… haha. (Foul memories of that darn suit however, still abide!).

Another great view was the summit of Stone Mountain, I’ve been there; on a day when it was almost clear enough to actually see as far as the proverbial eye can see ^_^. As far as views that I would love to see, I’ve always wanted to see Texas and Key West; my mothers always said how beautiful Texas was, and well, being a Floridian: do even you have to ask about the Keys? hehehe. Like wise, parts of Ireland and Italy come to mind. But, all in all, I’m not likely to see any of them within my life time.

I would love to someday see the mountains out in Tennessee again… I guess, even though I’ve always been around a ‘city’ style environment, I just prefer being a little further from contemporary civilization. I don’t think I will ever forget the sight of the mountains.
