Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. Also welcome to JANUARY. Here in Fairfield Glade, January is usually a cold month with some snow!!!! This picture was taken along the Druid Hill Golf Course near our home, one winter in January. HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL!!!!

To see a Smokies map (showing Parson Branch Road) click HERE. Look at the west side of the Smokies (on left) --and find Cades Cove. Just follow my directions and you'll see Parson Branch Road.
George and I had never gone on Parson Branch Road before ---so this was a new experience for us (which we had on Monday, May 23, 2011). To say that we didn't know what we were getting into is a true statement... There was mud and potholes and sludge everywhere.. The rangers had put down more gravel in spots---but even that didn't stop us from skidding in at least one spot. NEAL would love this road ---but GINNY and SANDRA would NOT--and would be "BWAKKING" the entire time!!!!! ha ha
I have another set of pictures to share sometime. We saw FOUR new waterfalls on this trip!!!!! Yeah!!!! My advice: don't go on this road unless you have a Prius and George as your driver!!!!!! ha ha... (We LOVED it!!!)
Have a wonderful June 1st. It's hotter than hades here now.... What's up with that? GADS!
