We had a blast on our trip to Western North Carolina, GSMNP and Gatlinburg. Rather than splitting my trip report, I posted it in the North Carolina forum because we started and ended there. The link is below. It's really long with a lot of details so anyone that is not interested in the other parts can skip to days 6 - 10 when we visited GSMNP and Gatlinburg. It includes a link at the bottom of the report to pictures. Hope some find it helpful!
