Laurel Falls is just a short hike from the road in @greatsmokynps . Waterfalls, like stars, are one of those things I am trying to perfect in my photography. I am not there yet, but it is certainly getting better. . . . . . . . . #laurelfalls #laurelfallstrail #waterfall #hike #hiking #greatsmokies #greatsmokiesnationalpark #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #tennessee @greatsmokynationalpark @nationalparkgeek #nationalparkgeek

Ran into this couple at Clingman’s Dome and they were three weeks into their Appalachian Trail hike, they didn’t yet have trail names, but looked like they were cruising considering the near freezing temperatures. . . . . . . . . . . #nationalpark #nationalparks #appalachiantrail #at #greatsmokies #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokynps #clingmansdome #hiking #hike #georgiatomaine

The hidden “troll bridge” in the Elkmont community of @greatsmokynps. The town has been abandoned for decades, but many of the structures are still standing and can be explored along the Little River Trail : : : : #carolinatrekker #hike #hiking #elkmont #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokynps #mountains #discover #explore #adventure #history #tennessee

The best friends are the ones you can travel anywhere with. Who schedule a weekend getaway because they know you desperately need it.

After exploring Elkmont, searching for a picnic spot, we drove down a dead end gravel road. We stumbled upon the Old Elkmont Cemetery. So of course, we had to explore. This is an active cemetery, some graves dating as far back as 1901.

That time of year. The Great Smokies are a National Park, @unescoworldheritage sure, and and International Biosphere Reserve. In other words it is a very important place that we need to protect! Excited to get to spend the week here and will hopefully get a good look at the spring blooms 🌸 . . . . . . #unescoworldheritage #unescoworldheritagesite #unesco @greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokynps #greatsmokies #greatsmokiesnationalpark #nationalpark #internationalbiospherereserve #northcarolina #tennessee

this was my first time exploring the Great Smokies and both Mike and I have never been on a train ride before, so we couldn’t have picked a better way to see these beautiful mountains. 😍 #theharveysgoplaces ⛰🚂

Went up to my favorite overlook to try to catch the sunset with @lindsay_frazier20, but it was a bit too cloudy.

Daisy Town, area of Elkmont, was a vacation community in the early 1900s. As the National Park was developed in 1925, the cottage owners sold their properties at half price in exchange for lifetime leases. The leases expired in 1992 at which time the National Park Service had other plans for the area and the families had to evacuate. This ghost town holds about 19 deserted log cabins and cottages and the Appalachian Clubhouse, which still may be used for events. #daisytown #ghosttown #littlerivertrail #elkmont #elkmontghosttown #smokiesroadsnps #smokies #greatsmokymountains #gsmnp #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #exploresmokymtns #visitmysmokies #findyourpark #nps102 #thenationalparkspass #usparksandmonuments #appalachian #appalachiantrail #tennessee #seeamericafirst #roadtrip #roadtrip2018 #desiluski

My in-laws have never experienced the Great Smoky Mountains before this trip. From views to wild animals to waterfalls to hikes to picnics... I hope I succeeded in showing them its beauty. We picnicked every day. The simplicity of our picnics strengthened our family bond. . . . #familypicnic #rodzina #dziadkowie #wnuki #grandparents #grandkids #picnic #cadescove #cadescoveloop #smokiesroadsnps #smokies #greatsmokymountains #gsmnp #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #exploresmokymtns #visitmysmokies #findyourpark #nps102 #thenationalparkspass #usparksandmonuments #appalachian #appalachiantrail #tennessee #seeamericafirst #roadtrip #roadtrip2018 #travelingtwins #desiluski

For such a primary stretch of an iconic trail (the Appalachian trail, right near Clingman’s Dome), I sure wasn’t expecting to only see two other groups of hikers throughout our 10 mile trip. • • • @greatsmokynps #smokymountains #greatsmokynps #appalachaintrail #clingmansdome #trailmarker #uphillbothways #hikeandshoot #landscape #thegreatoutdoors #canontravels

Cades Cove was sitting pretty in March, but we’ll be taking another look later on this month.

Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more. — Victoria Erickson #gatlinburgtennessee #smokymountains #naturephotography #homeofmyfamily #greatsmokynps #mountains #ramseycascades #nature #TagsForLikes #sky #blue #gsmnp #instagramtennessee #tennessee #cadescove #smokies #exploreeverything #adventure #thisismycommunity #outdoors #explore #theonlytennessee #communityfirst #mothernature #waterfalls #thegreatoutdoors #photooftheday #hiking

I was standing silently letting my eyes scan my surroundings when I heard them approach but afraid to move for fear they would pick up on the movement and not come in. So I remained still and they landed out of sight approximately 75-80 yards away. I could hear them as they touched down in the water but couldn’t see where they landed. It had rained the night before and the leaves were wet so I was able to move toward where they were undetected. When I finally was able to spot them I was hidden by two trees but I was unable to get any closer without them seeing me. I could see the hen was on the log by the time I made it around but I saw the drake in the water about 25 feet away from her partially out of sight and then the drake swam over and climbed up on the log right beside her. They seemed to sense something I guess wasn’t quite right but between the two trees I was able to get off three to four shots and then they were gone. It’s moments like these that keep us all going back for more. #cadescove #cadescovephotography #gsmnp #friendsofthesmokies #smokymountainphotography #smokiesfriends #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokynationalpark #nationalparks #nature_brilliance #naturephotogrqphy #allnatureshots #bestnatureshots #instagramtennessee #865life #alive_photo @alive_photo #birds #birdsofinstagtam #pocket_birds #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #birdextreme #udog_feathers #cornellabofornithology @cornellabofornithology @feather_perfection #woodducks #ducks

For those if you that know the Smokies well, you’ll know immediately why the unexpected feelings surfaced tonight.. You see, quicker than I ever thought possible - my heart sank, a lump popped up in my throat and I felt tears trying their best to get to my eyes.. As David Brill said, “Dennis Martin’s family is here tonight.” .. It always breaks my heart when I hear his name, but to hear it and to see his family.. Just crushed me. You see, on June 14th of 1969 at the age of 6 years old Dennis Martin vanished into thin air while celebrating Father’s Day with a backpacking trip to Spence Field. The search for Dennis was the most extensive search in park history with 1,400 searchers in a 56 square mile area. Storms and heavy rains rolled in the night of his disappearance, complicating the search.. Even Dwight McCarter, the best tracker in park history, was on the search team. But, nothing. Absolutely nothing. Tonight, yet again.. Dennis Martin is on my mind.. And well, I pray the day does come that the mountains produce Dennis, if he’s still there.. Among the hills and valleys. That they somehow, someway.. Finally bring his family some type of closure.

It’s definitely going to be a good year for morels! I’ve spotted two groups of these FunGuys hanging out this past week.. This past time, in the Smokies. You should always practice #leavenotrace ethics while exploring the park.. However, the National Park Service does allow you to take small quantities of morels from the park.. Just don’t be greedy and leave some for the needy. ☺️ #morelmushrooms

Twin dads and cousins spent the day white water rafting- 4th time for Twin Dad 1 and traveling twins but first time for Twin Dad 2 and cousin. Luckily they had the raft to themselves since the other family canceled due to the wet and cold weather. 👍❤🌲🌊 . #whitewater #whitewaterrafting #rafting #upperpigeonriver #littlepigeon #pigeonriver #raftoutdooradventures @raftoutdooradventures #smokiesroadsnps #smokies #greatsmokymountains #gsmnp #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #exploresmokymtns #visitmysmokies #findyourpark #nps102 #thenationalparkspass #usparksandmonuments #appalachian #appalachiantrail #tennessee #seeamericafirst #roadtrip #roadtrip2018 #travelingtwins #desiluski

This was the best mountain view of Gatlinburg that I could get on a very misty and cold morning en route to GSMNP. Nevermind the fogginess, it's still quite a beautiful spot - finding some peace amidst the touristy town. . #scenicoverlook #gatlinburg #smokiesroadsnps #smokies #greatsmokymountains #gsmnp #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #exploresmokymtns #visitmysmokies #findyourpark #nps102 #thenationalparkspass #usparksandmonuments #appalachian #appalachiantrail #tennessee #seeamericafirst #roadtrip #roadtrip2018 #desiluski
