College aged son and Mom will be going by car to GSMNP shortly--very shortly. We'd like to get in a hike each day, see some wildlife, and stay in hotel or BB. We are not taking camping gear other than day packs, shoes etc.
We would appreciate some place to start our itinerary---leaving Richmond Sat eve and returning Wed late morning.
Thank you for tips, suggestions, and advice. It isn't every day a 21 yr old asks his mom to do something "fun for spring break"---so I need the help of the experts!
