My family and I took a trip to the mountains to celebrate my oldest sons birthday. We had a blast. Here are a few photos of the trip. I'll try to get them in order.

More driving. These were all in TN above Gatlinburg. The last two were up at Newfound Gap on the Appalachian Trail.

The first is Newfound Gap and the rest are more of the cabin we stayed at. That was my view for 5 days. The last is packing up for the return trip.

Some snow we encountered on the return trip and finally FLORIDA! Good to be back in the sunshine. All in all it was a great trip. Did have to replace a couple of coils packs in Atlanta but everything turned out ok. Car handled amazingly on the mountain roads like a billy goat. Very sure footed. It was made for that terrain. Also the General Grabber AT2's helped a bunch.[thumbup]

Nice shots. Interesting country through that way. I have been through to Charleston SC and Savannah once and we did one of the Ridge Parkways. Completely enjoyed that.

You should try a photo host like Flickr or Photobucket. Lets you post larger pictures right in your post.

Nice pictures.
Thanks for sharing.
At least the roads there are in better condition than what we are experiencing over here in Morocco!

Sorry for the late response. They are General Grabber AT2 Light Truck and SUV Tire 215/65R16. They handle really good on ice & snow as well as rain and just normal driving. They still look new too. No noticeable wear.
