All roads lead north?

One of the interesting misadventures this weekend stemmed from a quaint little custom they have in Gatlinburg, TN. There's a stretch of route 441 where both directions are "North."


So we turned left out of the hotel lot when it was time to head to the church for our friends' wedding, not sure we were going the right way... but the "441 North" sign convinced us we were.

Eventually we realized we were going the wrong direction, turned around, and there was another sign saying "441 North" the other way.

I wasn't sure I hadn't imagined it until I was telling a local about our confusion during the reception, and he said, "Oh, no... you weren't imagining things. It's really north both ways."


Otherwise a fantastic weekend. More later. Sleep now. :-)
