Sunday, December 17, 2023: The Smokey Hills of Tennessee at the Great Smokey Mountains National Park.

Water comes down from higher in the mountains.

Plenty of waterfalls along the way.

Clouds graced the peaks on this day.

This cabin has been here for more than 100 years. They used rock as support for the structure.

Hand hewn timbers from 100 or more years ago.

Mountain peaks were in the clouds.

Mark and Paula continued up.

They were in the clouds at the top.

Mark decided to walk this part of the Applacian Trail, to the amusement of the onlookers.

Paula found herself at the state line, more than 5000 feet above sea level.

Quote of the day:    One more interesting experience.  Mark < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
