On the 3rd (Sat), make a trip to Stecoah Valley Cultural Arts Center, experience rural life at Yellow Branch Pottery & Cheese, then do some rugged touring at Deals Gap, and finally admire the sheer force of Yellow Creek Falls. Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at Junaluska Museum, explore the activities along Santeetlah Lake, and then relax in the rural setting at Stoney Hollow Farm.
