On these dates, Tim and Barbara will be exploring Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the most visited national park in the United States. The fall color, being that the park is located in the southern states, arrive a bit later than it did where they just came from (Grand Teton National Park). The forests are much different than those found in Wyoming. They contain Maples, Poplars, Birches, Oaks, Chestnuts, Elms, Dogwoods, Sasaphras' and many more varieties of trees that provide a rainbow of colors matched only by similar ecosystems found elsewhhere in the country. Streams meander throughout the park creating many water falls and reflection pools that add to the available photographic ops. The wildlife of the park is flooded with healthy populations of black bear, white-tail deer, turkey and a wide selection of birds indigenous to the park. A wonderful place to be during this time of the year.
