A well designed attraction that makes authentic moonshine. Ole Smoky is the first federally licensed distillery in the history of East Tennessee. Sunset above the clouds The fall color display usually reaches peak at mid and lower elevations between mid-October and early November. This is the park's most spectacular display as it includes such colorful trees as sugar maple, scarlet oak, sweetgum, red maple, and the hickories.
I'm calling this Clingman's dome is one of my favourite places to hike in the smokies. At its peak, the mountain is 6,643 feet above sea level. Not very high if you compare it to other mountain ranges around the world, but this mountain is the tallest mountain in Tennessee, tallest in the smokies, and the tallest one on the Appalachian trail.
It rarely gets warm here, never averages above 70 during the year. That is at least 10 degrees cooler then the valley below. When I was here it was rather cold. These clouds rolling in swept over us and and made the place turn into a cold sauna. Hillbilly Golf - A unique take on tourist area mini golf. Players ride a motorized incline up the hill to begin the course and proceed to play their way back down. On the tram to the top Swedish pancakes - crepes stuffed with lingonberries imported from Sweden (swanky, right?) and topped with lingonberry butter, powdered sugar and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Alum Bluff Cave Trail Cades Cove offers the widest variety of historic buildings of any area in the national park. Scattered along the loop road are three churches, a working grist mill, barns, log houses, and many other faithfully restored eighteenth and nineteenth century structures. The park usually experiences an autumn leaf season of several weeks as fall colors travel down the mountain sides from high elevation to low. However, the timing of fall color change depends upon so many variables that the exact dates of Baskins Creek Falls Cades Cove is a broad, verdant valley surrounded by mountains and is one of the most popular destinations in the Great Smokies. It offers some of the best opportunities for wildlife viewing in the park. Large numbers of white-tailed deer are frequently seen, and sightings of black bear, coyote, ground hog, turkey, raccoon, skunk, and other animals are also possible. Prime Corned Beef Breakfast Hash - slow cooked corned beef pan fried with diced potatoes, green peppers, onions and fresh herbs. Then broiled with 2 farm fresh eggs served with a cat-head (size comparison wise not ingredient wise) biscuit and candied apples. The fall color display usually reaches peak at mid and lower elevations between mid-October and early November. This is the park's most spectacular display as it includes such colorful trees as sugar maple, scarlet oak, sweetgum, red maple, and the hickories.
Lonely Tree, taken six years ago. I'm going to find it again. And retake it. I love this tree! The Sugarlands is a valley in the north-central Great Smoky Mountains, located in the Southeastern United States. Formerly home to a string of small Appalachian communities, the valley is now the location of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park headquarters and the Sugarlands Visitor Center. Lying just south of Gatlinburg, the Sugarlands is one of the park's most popular access points. This area is easily accessible from US 441. A lovely town deserves a nice view Overlook the city of Gatlinburg on ur way to Newfound Gap There are a number of old log buildings in the smoky national park and the best place to see them is Cades Cove. Just drive through the park and stop on a shoulder for a short hike to this building called the Jim Bales Cabin.

Fresh made cinnamon rolls, battered in egg and pan fried golden brown. Served with maple syrup and whipped cream. Cascades Early morning, left the shoes out to dry from a full day of hiking in and out of streams the day before. Just thought they looked cool being Great day site seeing in the Great Smokey mountains ... beautiful country right here in the USA right under our own feet ... Mmmmm doughnut.

This was taken by a good friend of mine, had to grab it! 💚 Why are fall colors so remarkable in the Smokies? One reason is the park's amazing diversity of trees. Some 100 species of native trees live in the Smokies and the vast majority of these are deciduous.
I drove through the Great Smokey Mountains today. Saw a rushing creek so I stopped to take a closer look. I think I could spend a lifetime here. #leafpeeping #FallingforFall #NationalParks On the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains NP. Follow the Motor Nature trail to a small lot just before the Alex Cole cabin. This is where the road passes over Baskins Creek. This trail is known as both the Baskins Creek Trail and the Graveyard Ridge Trail. The graveyard is only a few hundred yards from the parking area. The falls on the other hand is about 1.6 miles on a moderate trail. Be careful!! The last time I hiked it there was NO sign marking where to turn left and cross the stream to get to the falls. You can also continue on the Baskins Creek Trail past the turnoff to the falls and wind up back at the Motor Nature trail, near the Rainbow Falls parking area. This entire route is about 2 1/2 miles, but note that the portion past the falls turnoff going to Rainbow Falls is more strenuous than the first part. ALSO: note that this is a one-way road and you will need someone to drive your car back around the Nature Trail to meet you back at the Rainbow Falls parking area. Pull off and cool your feet in a cool #mountain spring!! #water #smokymountains #nationalparks #tennessee #aquatrove
#nationalpark Wonderful place on the top of Smoky Mountains Known as the Cades Cove offers the widest variety of historic buildings of any area in the national park. Scattered along the loop road are three churches, a working grist mill, barns, log houses, and many other faithfully restored eighteenth and nineteenth century structures. Awesome way to start off the day Ober Gatlingburg. On the strip. Penguins in the mountains Great way to start the new year. Photo taken from Ober Gatlinburg, such a beautiful place. When I ordered 2 pancakes, I had NO idea I would get panCAKES!!! They were delicious but almost too much!! The best place to get your taffy from! You can also watch how they make it! The horror starts even before you enter the venue Rain and fog combined Upside down building you gotta see this Beautiful small town in the Smoky Mountains If you're looking for some damn fine apple pie moonshine, I'd highly recommend this place. Found this peaceful little chapel while driving around Gatlinburg. So precious! #onthetrail Great Smoky Mountains Hollywood Wax Museum Smoky mountains are magnificent even in crappy weather View from the Park Vista Doubletree Another photo from Ober Gatlinburg.
