A wondrous diversity of life, ridge upon ridge of forest straddles the border between North Carolina and Tennessee in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. World renowned for its diversity of plant and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains, and the quality of its remnants of Southern Appalachian mountain culture, this is America's most visited national park.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a hiker's paradise with over 800 miles of maintained trails ranging from short leg-stretchers to strenuous treks that may require backcountry camping. But hiking is not the only reason for visiting the Smokies. Car camping, fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing, and auto touring are popular activities.

Lou, these are great shots. I did not realise that elk had been reintroduced
The photos are gorgeous, Lou. Thank you for bringing them to my attention. A very special treat indeed.

Breathtaking gallery of autumn photos from the Great Smoky Mountains, Lou! Viewing your slideshow as if I myself were driving down those quaint country roads enjoying nature's beautiful display of fall color. The elk in the morning fog absolutely magnificent! I hope visitors take the time to view not only your exceptional photographs from this trip but all of your other albums as well!
