With our Nashville visit in the rearview mirror we drove east to our other main stop, Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains, and made several stops along the way. Hiking at Cummins Falls State Park outside Cookeville gave us an opportunity to stretch our legs. The American Museum of Science and Energy in Oak Ridge was interesting to learn more about the Manhattan Project. The last leg of the drive along the Foothills Parkway was not the quickest way to Gatlinburg but worth the time.
