While driving through the Cherokee National Forest in search of the perfect pumpkin farm and the perfect pumpkin for Halloween, I answered a staggering amount of questions from the back seat from my son Macee. “Why this, what is that, how tall are those....” I tried my best to get all of the answers about mountains, trees, animals, and “smoke” correct, but I knew more research was needed.
