    At just over 200 feet tall, it's pretty impressive especially at night.

    Whoa, where is that? Cool. But not a log cabin or anything you usually see.

    The first one is from the hill overlooking The Island at Pigeon Forge, TN. Here's another a little closer.

    Wow, that area really appears to have changed in the 20 years since I was there. The aquarium was under construction when I was last there.

    @Dean_Gretsch the parkway in Gatlinburg has undergone a few changes in recent years, most notable was the Aquarium. However, because of the land locked nature of the strip not much else has changed. A few new venues here and there. Pigeon Forge, offers more room to spread out. We spend anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks a year in the area.

    @smoke665 Have you been to the Appalachian Museum in Clinton, Tn? You might enjoy that too.

    I really wish I would have had more time to work with the colors of the fountain and the wheel, but as I was literally shoulder to shoulder with people, it was not to be. Maybe next trip it won't be so crowded.
