Day in Cherokee, NC
Cherokee Indian Museum
We spent Thursday, October 10th touring Cherokee. We started with coffee and wi-fi at the Visitor Center. While our RV park was in a beautiful spot on the river, it did not offer wi-fi and phone service was very limited. (or non-existent if you had AT&T). Sarah was put in charge of locating an RV spot in Asheville, NC for the next few nights.
Lots of Bears in town!
We spent the morning touring the Cherokee Indian Musem and walked around the town area. There are lots of touristy shops, etc. downtown. Mingo Falls is just out of town. We drove out there and hiked up to the falls before taking a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I knew there was a Harrah's in town so we drove over to check it out. It was huge!!! Way out of my league so we just "gawked" for a bit and then headed back to the campground for dinner.
Beginning my new life as a "sixty and single" woman started with a "Grand Adventure" of a five month road trip. Included in my travels were a stop in the Grand Canyon, two months in Berkeley, CA, and a ferry ride to Juneau, AK. After my two month Alaskan adventure, I returned on the ferry and visited several more national parks before relocating to Franklin, TN. (its great to have children in fun places) I spent the summer of 2012 working in Yellowstone National Park at Fishing Bridge General Store. Wanderlust has struck!!! I have purchased a Casita 17' Spirit Deluxe travel trailer . . . the adventure continues.
