Smoky Mountain Drive


I just got back from a long weekend in the Smoky Mountains.
It has been several years since my last visit.


I couldn't resist the beautiful autumn colors and took
lots of pictures.



This was taken from my car in Gatlinburg.


Tunnel outside of Gatlinburg


A tapestry of rich, autumn hues


I like barns.


An old church cemetary in the cove.


The view over Gatlinburg.


The mountains change colors depending
on what time of day it is


Trees forming a canopy over the road


A creekbed


Driving through Cades Cove


Stepping back to a more peaceful time


My daughter and granddaughter
visiting the old church

Thanks for the trip with you through your photos! We think each year the color is more glorious than the last don't we?

Pictures

Growing up in my era we didn't take a lot of pictures. Of course, there were the school pictures, which I dreaded, and Mom rarely bought...
