{travel tales part two- kansas -> st. louis -> nashville -> gatlinburg -> asheville}

{tallgrass musings}

Happy Sunday y’all, let’s pick up where we left off!

After leaving Nashville, we took off for the Gatlinburg/Sevierville/Pigeon Forge, Tennessee area. We rented a cabin on top of a mountain that happened to be about equal  distance to all of these cities which meant for easy exploring access to a variety of places. With a few days of busy travel behind us, I was looking forward to lots of book and magazine reading time!

Goats on the Roof

goatsonroofGoats on the Roof is a new addition to Pigeon Forge. It is a unique and different souvenir shop. There are goats on the roof that you can feed. You can buy food for the goats in the store and feed them by either peddling a stationery bike to get the feeding cup to the roof or cranking by hand.  You can not actually get onto the roof.  This is not a petting zoo.

Very cute souvenirs and friendly staff.  There is a gem mine too.  They also sell fudge, jam and ice cream…kids will love it!
