Arrived Timber Tops Cabin checkin around noon. Cabin not available yet. Instructed to call every hour until available. Drove around to learn the area. Had to take an alternate route to avoid heavy traffic to Pigeon Forge. Cozy Bears View cabin available after 4:PM. HOT - Air conditioner was frozen up. Waited several hours to have it repaired.
After setteling in, traveled to Gatlinburg. 1st stop, Ripleys Aquarium. OK but if you've seen one, you've seen them all I suppose. Myrtle Beach Aquarium may be better.
Heavy rain after Ripleys, back to the cabin!
