Rain was due to arrive about noon on Thursday when Charlotte and I were in Pigeon Forge, so we got out early for a hike there at the cabins where we were staying. Our first stop was to sit in a great swing with beautiful views of the mountains.
After a break there, and a stop to visit the chapel along the trail, we headed on up the Sunset Ridge Trail. This was the barrier we ran across when we reached the end of the trail. It was a great little walk.
