    That is surprisingly late for this area. Ours started August 7. Knox county's started August 9.

    Maybe they need the kids up there to work in the tourist related businesses and delay school for that reason. I know Dollywood went back and forth on hiring 15yos while my daughter worked there. There are definitely more jobs than people to fill them.

    Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail

    August 25, 2007

    The Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail is a journey through
    The Great Smoky Mountains. The one way drive along a
    narrow road starts just outside of Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

    This was our first visit and the drive took us 90 minutes.
    We stopped a few times for photos - we did not get out
    to hike the many trails to the falls or through the woods.

    Here are a few links - regarding the history of the area:
