Ready for the fall colors in the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.

The biggest question is “when is the best time to visit”.

This year, the Department of Biology at Appalachian State University published a map of their estimates for the North Carolina side of the park.

It would appear that the first week in October is the target for the higher elevations. Most of the park will be at peak in the second and third week in October.  We hope they are right.

Wildlife everywhere…. Bears, Deer, Eagles and Hawks roam the expansive fields. Bikers peddle the winding trails and roads.  This quiet historical cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. was populated until 1936. And, you can still stop and enjoy visiting the many existing homes of the past.
