SWIPE LEFT 👈👈👈......."Tunnel Vision" The Brushy Mountain Spur trail is narrow and thick. Some spots so narrow you can't place your feet side by side. If you navigate this section expect to get lots of crap in your shoes and hit in the face with branches.

We went back to the park early that am to see Cades Cove Road. It's an 11 mile picturesque loop. I think it would be most pretty in fall. We saw tiny baby cubs, clusters of butterflies & turkey as well. It is near 90 degrees here that day. Sad to be leaving Tennessee.

This view of the Fontana Trestle is only available to those who travel the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. The open air cars give a panoramic view of Fontana Lake and the Great Smokies. 🎬 by @detroit_thrash •••••

America the beautiful 🇺🇸 The Great Smoky Mountains National Park (part 2) We saw more bear, wild Elk, & turkey. I've sat for hours in Western states waiting to see Elk with no luck. Wasn't expecting this here. We observed many today, grazing, drinking water, even prancing. What a treat! Enjoyed a beautiful sunset too! What a way to end our last night in Tennessee! A beautiful state.

Now this is our scene! The astounding,
breath taking & beautiful
Great Smoky Mountains National Park. (Part one)
The area we explored is split between Tennessee and North Carolina. We walked on part of the Appalachian trail & climbed up to Clingmans Dome.
Clingmans Dome is 6,643 feet & is the highest point in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It's also the highest point in Tennessee, and the third highest mountain east of the Mississippi. We saw a momma bear & 3 tiny cubs ♡ difficult to capture. The temp dropped nearly 25 degrees at the top.

Down in the Valley! I’m going back through and re-editing some of my shots. This is one my favorite shots ever taken in the Smoky Mountains. Have you ever went back and tried something different out with your photos?

Camping with your dog is fun. Paddle boarding with your dog is great. Combining all of the above for paddle board camping at Fontana Lake creates epic great fun! Tucker the golden retriever approves! 📷 by @c3pilates_studios ......

I don't hike to log new miles or to get the perfect shot. I'm an inspirational hiker and go where i feel I need to be. I was thinking about that lonesome tree on Brushy mountain from a few weeks back. I felt it would be a good morning to catch a sunrise with this guy. My feelings where correct. .

The stunning sunsets just keep coming. Once again at neighbor's house. Glad we are cat-sitting this week. Three photos, swipe left for earlier captures this evening. #828isgreat #greatsmokymountainsassociation #greatsmokies #ncmountains #mountainsunset #sunset #brysoncity #lovencsmokies #fontanalake #fontanalakeestates

I’ve had some folks ask me about Chimney Tops, and how it looks since the fire. Truth is, I hadn’t been up there for myself to see till the other day. The trail is closed short of the rocky pinnacles themselves, but hikers can still tackle this trail and there is a new overlook and vista. The peaks are a semi desolate moonscape, and the evidence of fire is plain to see. That being said, it kind of looks like Gandolph’s hat to me. What do y’all think?
