A relaxing walk through “the place of the balsams,” will leave you feeling rested and rejuvenated
Feeling stressed and tired from all the worry in the world? If so, come escape to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee for a treetop excursion that will put your mind at ease.
Anakeesta, located in Gatlinburg TN, is now offering a walk through the trees in North America’s longest tree-based bridge.
“Guests will walk more than 800 feet along a spectacular series of sky-bridges suspended 50-60 feet in the air,” according to their website.
“Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature as you stroll through the canopy.”
“Experience what it feels like to be a bird in the treetops. Keep a sharp eye, you may spot a bear on the forest floor below or a woodpecker nearby.”
In April, a powerful storm came through, knocking down three five-ton trees that damaged part of the walkway. Eleven of the 16 bridges still remain open. It was the ultimate test of the bridge’s strength and durability.
