Smoky Mountain Magesty

The first time I ever visited the Smokies was on my honeymoon in the fall of 1998. Being from the flat land of Louisiana, I had never even seen a hill before much less a mountain. I was totally take back by the beauty!! It is something special about those mountains that keep me coming back. I have traveled back 2 or 3 times a year ever since.

In the following pages I will share my pictures and experiences with you. I love to share "my mountains" with others!!!! I hope you enjoy and visit if you have not already, and if you have, I know you enjoy it as much as I do!!!!

Welcome to the Great Smoky Mountains!!!!

This is the famous sign that will greet you and every entrance into the National Park. The sign at the Gatlinburg entrance will usually have a line of people getting their pictures taken!!!!

Fall colors at its best!!!

October is the most popular time of the year here for its wonderful fall foliage.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:One of the best places to go hiking, fishing, and camping.
  • Cons:Peak season can be very crowded!!
  • In a nutshell:"A picture perfect place!!"
