The drive over the Smoky Mountains wasn't as spectacular as I was hoping. I'm from the Rockies, and I'm a bit of a mountain snob. While beautiful, the Smokies aren't as enormous as what I'm used to, but it was still nice to see some mountains after the flatness of Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee. I stopped in Cherokee, but the weather was getting to be pretty bad (torrential rainfall), so it was a very quick stop. Five hours later, I pulled into Fayetteville, my new home.
