Gunslinger... You are waisting your time. There aint no animals in the Smokeys. That was my biggest complaint! I saw NOTHING! Hmph. Mad now. I did see a dead ground hog. Oh... and I think there was a squirrel in dollywood. I complained the entire time. I was like, where are the freaking animals!
The problem was we had the dog and couldn't do any of the back country trails so we could only do the heavily trapsed over ones. The boys were so busy doing the tourist crap they didn't care about no stinking bears. I put them on a guilt trip though and so next month we are taking the horse trailer to the Shenendoahs so I can see the leaves changing and the bear. (I'm not sure when the leaves will change this year. It's been dry so I'm thinking early).
MHF - I was a very wealthy aristocrat who had just gotten married. I did survive. Max was a crewman but I didn't find his name or info anywhere. I forget who husband was...
They do that at the Holocaust museum as well. I think it's neat because it really gets the kids involved and they "trick" them into learning and taking something away from it.
More fun pix. The last one is from my ghost tour... Had to show off my orbs!
