thought i'd write a little more about my trip....man it sure seems like a long time ago! as you know, the trip happened due to business, and i talked hubby into meeting me up there for a long weekend get-away. team building exercises are one of the all time favorites of the company...many of them i am glancing at the side door hoping for a chance to escape. this trip's activity was really fun, though. laser tag!!! yep...this middle aged, overweight, nana donned vest and manned a laser gun and snuck around a dark room, hiding behind walls, jumping out and firing at the 'enemy'. my roommate was on the opposite team, and we had made this deal....we wouldn't shoot one another. lol yeah...right! i'm not sure who shot the other first....but once we had that gear on and weapon in hand, we became very competitive. i'm not really sure that anything is actually accomplished by these activities....i mean at this point in our lives and careers..... you are either a team player or not, right?? anyway....my team won....and i was actually awarded the title 'cosmic sergeant'. that was 3rd ranking from the bottom. lol
so here are a few more pics....
the colors were so amazing!!!
an old grist mill...pretty interesting. you can actually enter and go up to 2nd floor...3rd floor closed.
there were many beautiful chapels. 2 years ago, i looked at getting married in a chapel like this in the smokies....but we chose the cruise instead.
a visitor's center
coming in for a landing on little pigeon river....
can you believe these colors??? it was so beautiful. this was sunrise at clingman's dome...definitely the highlight of the trip!
