Our friend Gary arrived yesterday for a weekend of rest, relaxation, and exploration. Today we ventured into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by exploring the Oconoluftee Farm Museum and Mingus Mill to get an idea of what life was like in the area a hundred or more years ago. We wandered among the farm buildings that have been relocated here from various parts of the park and and talked at length with the miller on duty at Mingus Mill. And in general just enjoyed geeking out over late 19th and early 20th Century technology as well as walking in the sunshine on a gorgeous autumn day in The Smokies.
