Ahhhhhhh, Autumn. Leaves crunching beneath my feet, and a crisp nip in the air. Campfires and marshmallows and beautiful color. Its been a dream of mine for many years to see Autumn in The Smoky Mountains, and this year my dream came true!! To say it completely took my breath away would be an understatement. There were tears in my eyes, it was so amazing!! I highly recommend getting to Smoky Mountains National Park about the 3rd week of October, when colors are at their peak. Just drive, and get lost, and drive some more.
We stayed at Camping In The Smokies Campground. It’s a nice campground – right near downtown Gatlinburg, which is very convenient. There’s even a trolley that will pick you up at the campground and take you downtown. While downtown, we visited a few shops (for candy apples and ice cream of course!), restaurants, and went to the Aquarium, which is always a favorite way to spend a day.
Enjoy some of my photos of The Smokies in Autumn. If you love any of these photos and would like to have one for your own, you may purchase these and many others at Fine Art America. Your purchases help support my small business, and I appreciate it!!
