This Is Great Smoky Mountain National Park Too

There’s more than just waterfalls in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. In fact it is probably more known for its wildlife. The park is home to coyotes, deer, turkeys, elk and most notably for the approximately 1600 black bears that live in those mountains. We had the chances to meet 2 of them. Kinda cool to watch a bear climb up a tree to feed.

And it is also known for its scenic views of the mountains, often covered in a little haze—hence the name Smoky Mountians—that gives the Smokies a beautiful blue glow on sunny days. And even on overcast days, when the sky is dark and gloomy, the views are magnificent.

I could have spent at least a few more days in the Smokies enjoying the views, the hikes and the wildlife. But we had a few more plans, so I guess I will have to save that for another year.
