024 - Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Tennessee / North Carolina (PDF with color photos)

Photograph America Newsletter on Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee / North Carolina
 
The Great Smoky Mountains are a sanctuary in the Appalachian Highlands, preserving the world's finest examples of virgin deciduous forest. Over one-hundred varieties of native trees and over fifteen-hundred species of flowering plants can be found in this International Biosphere Reserve. Located at the southern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway and split in two by the border between Tennessee and North Carolina, this national park is the most heavily-visited park in America. When you arrive in the spring for the peak of the wildflower season or in October when autumn foliage paints the mountainsides, you will need help avoiding the crowds and traffic. Here are the details, the back roads, remote trails, and hidden corners of this park where few visitors ever travel. This newsletter will help you find the fall color, wildflowers, waterfalls, and where to set up a tripod to capture the classic sunrise scenes of distant fog-filled valleys and overlapping ridges of blue hills receding far into the distant Appalachians.
