Trip to Margaret's - Part 1

Standing on the exit to the Foothills Parkway looking at I 40 eastbound towards North Carolina

Recently, I took a solo trip to visit my sister Margaret in Peoria, Illinois. Normally, I would have stayed on Interstate highways all of the way, but I got bored with I40 and as I came out of North Carolina and into Tennessee I decided to take the :road less traveled" and turned on to the Foothills Parkway. The Foothills Parkway is a federal project that runs along the Tennessee side of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can read more about it on Wikpedia.
