OK I know where Wears Valley is. I don't get up that way much. I live about 20 miles north of Knoxville. Wears Valley is considerable ways from the previous Dollywood fire. I do know enough about the area to know the back way into Dollywood from Sevierville by-passing Pigeon Forge. LOL

My wifes family founded that area literally for John Sevier. She is from Isaac Thomas & McCown families bloodline.

We firest went to this area last summer. stayed in Black Bear Ridge, then, too (which is why i picked it for a mini-vacation last week. :( )

we fell in love with that area of TN. Had never been anywhere near the Smokies before.

Sevier County/Wears Valley just stayed in my heart ever since last July. Couldn't wait to get back. (yes...figured out some backroads to avoid 441!)

It's a fine part of our country with some really fine people.

Your wife's family must be grieving. I'm so, so sorry.
