So as you may know, this trip really was supposed to be the Tacky Tour 2007. We ran into a problem with this premise in Dollywood, where we discovered a complete lack of life size cardboard cutouts of Dolly. Actually... the whole thing was remarkably tasteful. I would say disappointingly so, except the whole experience was truly, wonderfully fun... and not just because of the huge, ear-to-ear grin on Rachel's face the whole time.

There was a great Dolly museum complete with candid photos, outfits from different points in her career, and the real live Coat of Many Colours. There was some amazing bluegrass music. A sort of cheesy but pretty fun country music retrospective. Fried green tomatoes. A gorgeous train that does a complete run around the park. A gospel music museum.

We spent about 5 hours there, and it was fabulous. I can't even make fun of it, reallly.

There will be a photo entry at some later date of the large number of horribly tacky outfits we saw, however.
