Tremont Outdoor Resort, Townsend, Tennessee

Arrived at Tremont Outdoor Resort on March 7, 2013 and got settled in our spot with the help of the manager, Jesse, and one of the other workampers, Scott.  Good gravel driveway and a little grassy spot to the back.  We have two gnomes off to one side next to the fence and a deck in the back with a picnic table.  Put in the Double Down Dog Run in the back near the table for the girls.  Got settled in on Friday and Saturday, washing the truck and trailer and going to the grocery store in Townsend for a few things.

Smoky Mountains, Newfound Gap & Clingman's Dome

Enjoyed a drive on March 20, the first day of spring, on the Foothills Parkway starting just outside of Townsend, driving south to Route 129. Found a place where we will want to take a short hike on Look Rock Tower Trail. The tower provides a 360 degree panoramic view of the Smokies. West is the Tennessee River Valley toward the Cumberland Mountains. The Look Rock tower is used by scientists to study air quality. While it is not directly in the park, I have included pictures of the area as it's all part of the Smoky Mountains.
