Smoky Mountain Trip - New Years weekend

For J's B'day we dropped JM off with the Grands and headed to the Smoky mountains over New Years weekend. It snowed most of the time we were there. We had an awesome little cabin with a view of Mt Leconte, which we could only see the last day we were there. We could also see Ober Gatlinburg. One of the days we were there they had closed every road in the park! This almost never happens! The next day we were finally able to go up to Newfound Gap and it was FREEZING! I'm talking about 6° and you could only stand ouside for about 2 mintues before you started to shiver uncontrolabley. But the view was AWESOME.
