Winter 2020 Trip, Day 37: Great Smoky Mountains NP, Andrew Johnson NHP

I realized this morning that I’m close to the as-yet-unvisited Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so I decided to make a quick detour.  Unfortunately I had a tire fail on the way so I had to change the tire in the chilly rain.  Despite the delay, I did make it there:

Yes, that’s snow.  I guess it is winter:

Next I visited Andrew Johnson National Historic Site:

Johnson is a fascinating character, and the visitor center and film were quite good.  Johnson’s original tailor shop is preserved here:

Can I please go back to California?

I continued into Virginia to overnight at the Cracker Barrel of Woodstock, Virginia.  See the trip map for today’s drive.
