The Smoky Mountain autumn was a good one this year. At lower elevations some pockets of leaves are hanging on, but as you can see in the photo above, the forest is bare on Mt. LeConte.
For some, this is a favorite time to get away to the Smokies. The October crowds are gone, but the days still hold a warmth and a glow. The days tend to drift by in blue-sky splendor this time of year. All the way to Thanksgiving before winter stakes its claim.
If you’re in the area, please stop in and visit me to see the complete display of Smoky Mountain Photography at the William Britten Gallery in Gatlinburg, TN.
