Thomas and I had been dating since July 10, 1981. On this Saturday we took a trip to Gatlinburg and stopped for a short visit at my grandmother's. Then we rode on up to Newfound Gap. We looked at the view and then walked a little ways down this path until we were out of sight of the crowds. And we told each other that we loved each other for the first time.
This year we have made several trips to the mountains and on October 18, we made a trip to Newfound Gap and took this picture (thanks to my tripod and the camera timer)in about the same place as that day in October 33 years ago. There was no camera and no tripod on that day - just the picture in our minds and hearts.
