Maple Court Senior Living community in Powell made it possible for a 93-year-old woman to once again ride on a motorcycle through the mountains thanks to the "Livin' the Dream" program.

The program offers residents in the Maple Court Senior Living community an exciting opportunity to live out one of their life-long dreams.

Martha Thompson got to live out her dream of taking a motorcycle ride through the Great Smoky Mountains. On Wednesday, she went for a scenic ride from Powell to Cades Cove on a three-wheel autocycle.

"It's just wonderful to see her smiling again and reliving what she did for over 40 years," her daughter Alice Wright said.

Thompson and her late husband used to ride motorcycles together up until they were in their 80s. Motorcycle riding was a thrilling activity for Thompson and something that she has always had a passion for.
