We left our home in North Knoxville around 10:15am – stopped for gas on Western Avenue – and headed down Alcoa Highway toward Maryville. In downtown Maryville we took 411 North toward Seymour. Once we got to Seymour, we took Boyd’s Creek Road to 66 in Sevierville. We then took 139 and headed toward Newport.

On the way to Newport, we stopped at Douglas Dam and enjoyed the spectacular views.

Enjoying the view.
