A Week in the Smokies

We just returned from the Great Smoky Mountains, where we spent three days hiking, enjoying waterfalls, and taking picture after picture of the largest display of spring flowers we've seen to date. We spent time on the Roaring Fork loop and in Cades Cove, the Sinks and a waterfall behind the Sugarland Visitors Center, and I have much to share. Here's just a sample of what I'll discuss in the next few posts.

A rainy day in Cades Cove:


Trillum, trillium, and more trillium:


A little bit of wildlife:



And let's not forget the water:


More to come!

Beautiful photographs. Glad the guv'ment didn't shut down while you were there. Can't wait to see the other pictures.

Hi there! Good to see you again. I had forgotten about the shutdown threat. It did almost derail our plans but thankfully, they got that worked out. We saw thousands of spring wildflowers. I'd hate to have missed that!
