Jake takes a sky walk between mountains



2020-10-10 - Gatlinburg, TN - Photo by Sherry Spoon.
"This beautiful site was from earlier this week!" writes the photographer, Sherry Spoon, "That’s my son, Jake, in the John Deere shirt - crossing reluctantly." SkyBridge in Gatlinburg, TN on the edge of The Great Smoky Mountain National Park, is 680 ft long and 140 ft high at the center. To access the SkyBridge you buy an admission ticket (prepare to spend around $20 per adult, $15 for children) at the SkyLift Park ticket window and then ride the yellow SkyLift chair to the top of the mountain where you'll begin your SkyBridge walk.
