Fun & Funky Gatlinburg

Yesterday afternoon was a quest to find Cooter's in the Smokies (aka: Dukes of Hazzard Museum; free admission) and the Salt & Pepper Shaker Museum (20,000 pair!; $3 admission and good towards the purchase of S&P set of your choice) And, the quest was successful in finding both. [ETA 9/23/08: Check out my article called "Two Quirky Gatlinburg Museums" about the two museums.]

Last night after the conference dinner, my friend SBC and I joined Haunted Ghost Tours of Gatlinburg ($18; couldn't find any coupons) for a 90-minute history and ghost tour, which ended in a cemetery. The site promises paranormal photos and I'm not sure if I captured bugs, water droplets, dust specks or paranormal orbs but something peculiar showed up in some of my photos. Check them out below - in two cases, I have a before and after shot - before with orbs and after without.

Tomorrow is shooting day with the group. Guns! Guns! When do we get guns? (Police Academy) I don't think I'll be shooting any of the handguns, air rifles or shotguns but will check it out to see what I'm responsible for setting up for next year.

I've uploaded new photos to the Gatlinburg album, enjoy and let me know what you think, orbs or dust?

The S&P museum sounds intriguing. A dear friend collects sets of S&Ps. She would probably enter the museum . . . and never come out.

Thanks for participating at MEME EXPRESS, pirate pal. ;-)

Those pictures look like what we caught on camera in Cassadega! Maybe it was spiritual??? ;)

Hi Jan, I have visited the area several times and it is interesting to me to see the diversity between the over the top tourist traps of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and the natural beauty of the Smokey Mountains.
Gatlinburg and Las Vegas are two examples of places that could only have been created in a country like the United States.
See you this winter.

I have to check out that Salt and Pepper Shaker museum! When I drove across country my partner Bill's mom collect salt and pepper shakers so everywhere we went I was trying to find the perfect set for him to buy for her. I have been paying extra attention to them ever since!
