The Smoky Mountains National Park. Notice the cloud cover, like a blanket over the hills.
The road up the mountain through dense fog.
At the top of the mountain in Smoky Mountains National Park. I went with two other bikers from Nebraska.
Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This is a gigantic tourism trap, though cheap. Notice the Dolly Parton billboard.
The campsite in Tennessee. I was the only camper and had this view of the lake, which is actually part of the Tennessee river.
The Parthenon in Nashville, Tennessee. This is a true replica of the Parthenon in Athens. The real treat is inside!
The statue of Athena, more than 12m high! It is covered in gold leaf and is an athentic historic replica of the original from more than 2000 years ago.
