Photo: Great Smoky Mountain Wheel at Night

Have you been to the Island at Pigeon Forge yet?  If you’re heading there at night you sure can’t miss this landmark – it’s the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, a 200-ft tall observation wheel.

It fits right in with this fabulous Smoky Mountains sunset scene, in this picture taken by area photographer Dean Brown.

About Carrie Waxler

I've worked for Gatlinburg Falls since March 2011. Lived in TN since 1996. I have now hiked Mt. LeConte three times. I've been on every trail that leads to the top. The last one we hiked up the Boulevard. I have walked my first 2.7 miles on the Appalachian Trail. Only 2176 miles to go. I plan to hike the Appalachian Trail when my children graduate. I also love lake kayaking on Cherokee Lake and Douglas Lake. We take our kayaks camping to middle Tennessee as well for river kayaking. I love talking to guests from the places I've visited or lived. Brings back many good memories. I love to be where people are having fun.
