These first two are from a random stop in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We stumbled the short distance down the bank to stand on rocks in the middle of this flowing river. I picked up some gorgeous stones (the rock hound in me...my grandmother's fault) and put my toes in the icy water.
From a lookout point--5,000 feet above sea level--in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As you can see there was a storm moving in. These turned out much better than I expected at the time.
