Yesterday’s forecasted snowfall resulted in rainfall in downtown Bryson City. Higher elevations and areas east of Bryson City did get some snow that created some beautiful landscapes! ❄️⛄️❄️ US 441 (Newfound Gap Road) remains closed through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park today as Park officials work to clear the roads. #smokymountains #naturalnorthcarolina #ncmountains #greatsmokymountains #blueridgemountains @jasonboyerwlos @avlwx #beautifuldestinations #visitnc #appalachian_explorers #landscape_captures #bns_landscape #greatsmokeymountains #romanticasheville #onlyinnorthcarolina #ourstatemag #ourstate #discover_carolinas #adventureappalachia #wnc #outaboutnc #explorecarolina #allbeauty_addiction #friendsofthesmokies #ashevilletrails #ncoutdoors #open828 #ncoutdoor_inc ***Use the hashtag #brysoncity for a chance to be featured on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Look at all these fallen leaves, who once looked at the sky while dancing among themselves and fully lived. Lived and at the same time growing old, not caring because they knew that when it was their time to leave, they had lived a life full of adventure and color until their last days. And gracefully, they knew that life itself was a gift…Let’s be more like leaves. 📍Great Smoky Mountains NP, 🇺🇸 photo by @adventurousdiego #greatsmokies #gsmnp #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #smokymountains #naturalnorthcarolina #ncmountains #greatsmokymountains #beautifuldestinations #visitnc #appalachian_explorers #landscape_captures #bns_landscape #greatsmokeymountains #romanticasheville #onlyinnorthcarolina #ourstatemag #ourstate #discover_carolinas #adventureappalachia #wnc #outaboutnc #explorecarolina #allbeauty_addiction #friendsofthesmokies #ashevilletrails #ncoutdoors #open828 #ncoutdoor_inc ***Use the hashtag #brysoncity for a chance to be featured on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

It’s going to be a great weekend! Will you be out in the snow? I didn’t think I would get a chance to camp in the snow so soon after I spent this cold night out watching the stars as a test run. I setup my camera to start recording the star movement and moonrise shortly after sunset and then climbed in my tent warm up. It was tough leaving my warm sleeping bag later but I got up and took a few shots of me trying to look comfortable with my lantern overlooking Canton, NC. With those shots done I did another composition with my tent (teaser for a future post), slept a bit and hiked out after sunrise. Finally from the warmth of my home I combined the 100+ images of the stars with some shots of myself to create this image! A long process but I enjoy every part of it!
