On the way to Cherokee the Waze AP placed me on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Look what was grazing along the Parkway,,,,, ELK
Cherokee is a fun town with many shops. Stayed in this town as it was close to many sites, however, there are campgrounds, and other venues nearby.
After retail therapy, take a walk on the Oconaluftee River Trail..
Or if energized, a short hike to Mingo Falls, which is 3 miles off Big Cove Road.
The Falls – worth the hike
