From Woodland Wonder to Devastation
My husband I traveled to Sevierville, Tennessee over the weekend so I could attend the Mountain Arts Quilt festival. We have been to Pigeon Forge a couple of times, usually staying in a cabin. I recommend staying in a cabin to enjoy the birds, flowers and evergreen trees. My sister and her husband bought a house nearby and so we stayed there this time. We drove into the congested tourist area and had fun knowing we didn’t really have to fight the crowd unless we chose to do so!
I have only been back to work one day and my niece just texted me to check out the pictures posted on her account at www.photobank.com. Thinking I would be seeing happy pictures similar to the ones of their wedding (they were one of the first I knew of who used wedding photo booth rentals that their guests were encouraged to use). I have since partaken in this fun reception activity using photo booth rental Dallas, and other venues.
I’m sorry, I went way off topic! Anyway, I opened her account to see pictures of the devastation because of a fire in the cabin area of Pigeon Forge. I am at a loss of how to describe my feelings. What a difference 24 hours makes. Pictures of helicopters pouring water over the area were not what I expected. Helicopters were having difficulty dropping water on the poorly contained fire because of the wind. They use a lot of propane tanks to heat the cabins and from what I have read online, the tanks have been exploding. I hope no one is hurt or killed. Pigeon Forge is such a beautiful area and it would be awful if it weren’t saved. Positioned on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains, the resort area is one of my favorite vacation spots.
