Here are more pictures taken that day from the Smokies... Above is another photo showing the sun as it pops through the clouds on that early morning.... I love seeing the rays as they shine down in the valley and mountains... The largest mountain in the photo is Mt. LeConte... The picture was taken from the bypass around Gatlinburg. You can see a little bit of Gatlinburg below in the photo. (Click for larger photos.)
Hope you live somewhere where the colors are marvelous in Fall.... I read that our winter this year may be very wet and very MILD. Obviously, that thrills George since he hates snow... I myself like snow (as I'm sure you know!!! ha)---so am still hoping for a little bit!!!!! I 'figured' that the winter may be mild here since our mast crop (nuts) is quite small this year, compared to recent years.. That is a 'sign' they say!!!!!! Well---good comes out of bad you know... George perked up and said: "We'll be able to hike more in the winter this year and see more WATERFALLS".... ha ha
Have a wonderful day!!!
