For those who enjoyed the last blog post about my hike to Grotto Falls, I just added a couple more related pages about the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail and the Bud Ogle Cabin and Nature Trail to Malia’s Miles website, so please check out the links for more pictures and info.
Noah “Bud” Ogle Cabin
It’s hard to believe this late 1900’s cabin is just a couple of miles from the bustle of busy downtown Gatlinburg!
Cascades in back of the mill across from the Reagan Place on Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. The rhododendron were amazing on this day and fulfilled every fantasy I had during the winter while I was waiting for this blooming season.
This drive has been one of my favorite pastimes since getting to the Smokies and I’ve been blessed to see it when fall was showing off its colors, in spring when the dogwood were blooming, and in summer accompanied by rhododendron or just the incredibly lush greenness all around.
Just can’t get enough of this area!
Note about blog vs. new website (and request):
Ever since I started transitioning the old html pages of Malia’s Miles website to WordPress format, I kinda go back and forth about what to put on the blog vs. the website. I started the blog thinking it would be more for personal writing, not necessarily related to RVing. But I liked how WordPress allowed commenting on the pages, so I started putting more stuff on it.
When I started Malia’s Miles website in 2005, WordPress didn’t exist and I only had basic skills using Dreamweaver. I kept a list of those who asked for updates and sent out emails when I added pages – that is, when I remembered to do that. It takes too much time to do that these days, and since the new website format allows comments and subscriptions by RSS feed or email notifications, I don’t send out emails anymore.
I promised a lot of subscribers to the blog that I would post notices when I updated the website, so that’s what I’m doing now. But since you can now subscribe to the website itself and I don’t want you to get sick of hearing from me by double posts, I sure would appreciate it if you would sign up to get updates when I add new pages to the website.
Just go to MaliasMiles.com and look at the top right column for your subscription options.
I truly appreciate all the support and encouragement I get from people who have followed me on my journey – some from when I first started in 2001 and all I had was AOL dial-up connection at campgrounds and had to wait in line to do that! What a trip that was!
I just love getting comments here or there, so let me hear from you, and I hope you continue traveling with me. 🙂
