Welcome to Jerry and Carol who joined this blog on October 11!
We were sitting around yesterday morning just vegetating. Around 11 Leonard said, "Let's go! Let's do something". Our something was to first visit the Museum of Appalachia and then Norris Dam State Park both only about 8 miles from our campsite.
Museum of Appalachia:
Displays in this complex are collections of thousands of pioneer, cultural, antique and everyday items from interesting and colorful mountain folk.
The Appalachian Hall of Fame has displays devoted to relics belonging to people from the surrounding region.
Our next stop was at the Norris Dam State Park. In the park is the Norris Dam a project of the Tennessee Valley Authority built in 1936.

To round out the day, we attended the nightly social hour at the campground and enjoyed the company of other campers at a dinner prepared by the cooks here at Raccoon Valley Escapees Park.
