The Foothills Parkway is part of Great Smoky Mountain NP
and runs from Rt. 321 to Rt. 129.
Later this summer, the new extension to Wears Valley will open!!
There are pull-offs all along the parkway.
By the time we reach the Look Rock pull-off,
the clouds had lifted:o))
Today, we wanted to hike to the Look Rock Tower!!
We crossed the road and begin a lovely walk to the tower.
The view over Maryville, Tennessee!!
Looking towards the Smoky Mountains!!
What goes up... must come down;-)
Back on the Parkway, we saw bikes of all types.
When we reached Rt 129,
we made a right and park along Lake Chilhowee.
Then it was time to head back the way we came.
Driving this direction we could see Look Rock Tower!!
Perfect Day...Beautiful Views!!
We found a shady spot for lunch;o))
Before heading home, we stopped at
The Dollar General with a VIEW!!!
By the time we got home, the storm clouds were brewing!!
Just after we got inside...the skies opened up!!!
Just another Smoky Mountain Day;o))
