We arrived in Pigeon Forge, TN on Wednesday night and I must say that my first impressions were Not positive. I had no idea how crowded and touristy commercialized it would be. The older I get, the less I like people and crowded spaces, I much prefer the country and natural wonder places. And I have to admit, that I was in a bad mood Wednesday night and Thursday morning because of the atmosphere of the area(sorry family). Thursday morning we weren't even sure we wanted to go to Dollywood anymore and we searched around for other things to do. It started to rain and really put a damper on things. But my hubby, being the good captain of our ship, pulled us through and dragged me out of my funk and persuaded us all to stick with our original plan and head to Dollywood(forecast said the rain would stop).
So off we went...
One last thing... they had a zip line course that you could pay extra for. There were 4 lines and you had to hike to each line in the mountains. Three lines were about 600ft long and over 100ft off the ground, one line was 130ft off, and the last line was 815ft long.
Since we are on vacation and didn't know if the kids would get another chance, we decided to let the older two do it(you had to be at least 12 yrs old and 80lbs).
Here is Gavin flying across the first line....
Have a lovely weekend,
