We really enjoyed exploring the Foothills Parkway. The Foothills Parkway is a national parkway in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee.
The 72-mile parkway connects U.S. Route 129 along the Little Tennessee River in the west with Interstate 40 (I-40) along the Pigeon River in the east. It's definitely worth a visit!
We returned to enjoy the spectacular views of this incredibly beautiful area in South Dakota.
It's a must-see destination.
We had fun finding our first campsite again and reminiscing about how we were afraid to unhitch the first night. You know the feeling, right?
Three trucks, two Airstreams and 75,000+ miles later, we think we’ve got this unhitching thing down pat.
Located just west of Marfa, Texas are several large, colorful pieces of pop art commemorating the western movie “Giant.” The movie was filmed at Little Reata Ranch in the 1950s and starred James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson. The film was James Dean’s last movie before his death in 1955.
“Giant” was a western epic capturing the drama of a Texas ranch family amidst the prospect of oil riches. “Giant” was added to the United States National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
The plywood tribute by artist John Cerney, titled "Giant Marfa," was erected in October 2018. It is located a few miles west of Marfa on US 90, on the north side of the road. A solar array powers a sound system playing country music by Michael Nesmith of The Monkees.
