Visiting the Smokies

Back again in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and wow, the bears were out! Certainly more bears than I had ever seen before in a single day here in the park. Many new cubs and getting to see them climbing trees and having a great time playing, was a special treat.

The spring rain also created many hillside waterfalls that you don’t get to see in other seasons, like this one below.

Besides the bears, there were coyotes, elk, eagles, herons, and many white-tailed deer in the meadows and fields.

My favorite location in the Smokies is the Tremont area, which offers unlimited spring cascades to photograph. If you’re lucky to have an overcast day, you can easily spend all day along this waterway. One of the largest and more photographed cascades is picture below.
