Great Smoky Mountains National Park – Pigeon Forge, TN


March 09, 2010 – Great Smoky Mountains National Park

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park was just as amazing as we hoped it would be!  We didn’t get to spend near as much time as we would’ve liked.  We spent only about six hours driving around and enjoying the scenery.  And probably only about an hour hiking.  We will definitely be back to spend a more extensive stay in the future!  Possibly even camping if I can convince city-boy Sonny of the delights of the possibility…  ;)


“Glass of milk
Standing in between extinction in the cold
and explosive radiating growth
So the warm blood flows
Through the large four-chambered heart
Maintaining the very high metabolism rate they have

Mammal, mammal
Their names are called
They raise a paw
The bat, the cat
Dolphin and dog
Koala bear and hog

One of us might lose his hair
But you’re reminded that it once was there
From the embryonic whale to the monkey with no tail
So the warm blood flows
with the red blood cells lacking nuclei
Through the large four-chambered heart
Maintaining the very high metabolism rate they have

Mammal, mammal
Their names are called
They raise a paw
The bat, the cat
Dolphin and dog
Koala bear and hog

Placental the sister of her brother Marsupial
Their cousin called Monotreme
Dead uncle Allotheria

Mammal, mammal
Their names are called
They raise a paw
The bat, the cat
Dolphin and dog
Koala bear and hog
The fox, the ox
Giraffe and shrew
Echidna, caribou”
