Photoblogging along the trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Shoreline New Hampshire & Maine

OK, spring fever has finally caught up with me.

For a cure, me and 2 other hiking buds took the day off this past Friday and did a nice 7.5 mile loop trail over in the Cataloochee Valley of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Cataloochee Valley is a fairly remote part of the park and is tougher to access than most of the rest so it's never crowded. We saw a total of 5 other people all day on the trail. When is the last time you only saw 5 people in 1 day???

Here's a link to my photoblog.

 Lots of delicate, Painted Trillium was in bloom along a lot of the trail. This a very abundant, springtime flower in the Smokies.

Jim, I love the smokey mountain area. My father was born and raised close to the Knoxville area...so I remember many summer vacations going there & also spending time at Blue Ridge Cabins, in Tennessee. Thanks for reminding me of some great memories! - Carla
