Great Smoky Mountains Memories

Glenn, Peyton and Austin are pictured here in a Smoky Mountain cabin
during Thanksgiving break 2008.
I have blogged many times about our family travels to
Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains.  
The cabins in the area were/are beautiful and luxurious and a
favorite place for many families in our area to travel to for
weekend getaways, vacations, camping and hiking.
I first visited Gatlinburg with my parents before I was two years old,
and continued to visit multiple times yearly since.
Our family, friends and neighbors are so sad about the massive devastation
this week due to the tragic wildfires.   
Some of our neighbors own property that was destroyed, but that is minor
compared to those who lost their homes and lives.  
Sending love and encouragement to all affected, and prayers for healing.

Like you, I have many fond memories of family trips to this area, and my heart hurts for those who've lost homes and, most of all, those who've lost loved ones there.

This is such a tragedy with devastating loss of life and homes... and now the news reports two teenagers have been detained. So very sad.
