The path to Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair in Tennessee from our home in Georgia is through gorgeous Great Smoky Mountains National Park. One of the reasons we enjoy participating as vendors at the fair is so we can enjoy the park during our free time before and after the show.
You never know what you’re going to see. In July, 2015, we came across “Lawrence Elk,” but we didn’t have such luck this past July.
Now that we are doing the fall show as well, we expected to see black bears, wild turkeys, and fall colors. Bruce was in luck seeing a bear, we both saw several turkeys; and, best of all, we had the pleasure of enjoying the array of autumn colors of the leaves during the drive home.
