Great Smoky Mountains National Park ~ We've had a beautiful, and long, fall color season in the mountains this year. In fact, you can still find some good fall color, especially in the lower elevations on the Tennessee side of the park. ~ Photo: A few trees still had vibrant colors late yesterday afternoon along the West Prong of Little Pigeon River on the Gatlinburg Trail.
"Smoky Mountain Farm Gate" by Debra and Dave Vanderlaan - The Appalachian mountains of North Carolina, at the end of a trail that leads up to an old vintage barn and past a weathered wooden gate and into a bit of history. This old farm in the Smoky Mountains is nestled between mountain peaks near the borders of Tennessee and Georgia.
