After crossing into Tennessee, we drove the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a winding, narrow road that passes by several historic cabins, homesteads and waterfalls @greatsmokynps #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokymountains #nationalparksusa #nationalparks #roaringfork #roaringforkmotortrail #roaringforkvalley #roaringforknaturetrail #roaringforkmotornaturetrail #tennessee #southernusa #usa #roadtrip #holiday

On the last full day of our holiday we finally made it to the summit of Clingman's Dome in Great Smoky Mountains National Park after the weather cleared for us. Unfortunately the spaceship-looking observation deck was closed for repairs, but we still managed to get a fantastic view over the alpine slopes of the Smokies. We then crossed the North Carolina - Tennessee state line at Newfound Gap to continue our drive through the park @greatsmokynps #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountains #smokymountains #nationalparksusa #nationalparks #northcarolina #tennessee #clingmansdome #newfoundgap #mountains #southernusa #usa #roadtrip #holiday

Today we explored the foothills of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, saw some preserved and restored homestead buildings at the Mountain Farm Museum, visited the still-working gristmill at Mingus Mill and drove another section of the Blue Ridge Parkway when a heavy thunderstorm stopped us from heading up into the Smokies proper. We'll be back tomorrow to try again! @greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokynps #cherokee #cherokeenc #blueridgeparkway #blueridge #blueridgemountains #nationalparksusa #nationalparks #mountains #mingusmill #mountainfarmmuseum #northcarolina #southernusa #usa #roadtrip #holiday

“How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them. Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails. He causes us to remember his wonderful works. How gracious and merciful is our Lord!” Psalms‬ ‭111:2-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬ When I read these verses of scripture they resonate deeply within me. I’m amazed at a simple stream and the rocks that are placed where they are and the water that finds it’s way around them. The canopy that hovers over it and the birds that move from branch to branch and quenches their thirst there. The light that breaks through and yet the shadows that don’t yield to it. When I look later at the image, regardless of how much injustice it was done by me, I remember how it really was and “how gracious and merciful” was the Lord who allowed me to “ponder” it. I trust everyone of you dear people, wherever you are, has a very blessed Sunday! 😊 #gsmnp #friendsofthesmokies #smokymountainphotography #smokiesfrieinds #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokynationalpark #nationalparks #nature_brilliance #naturephotogrqphy #allnatureshots #bestnatureshots #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #explore #outdoorlife #outdooradventurephotos #landscapes #capturelandscapes #alive_photo @alive_photo #instagramtennessee #865life @865life #nature #outdoors #outside #getoutside #explore

Steve found an unusual creature on display with a pair of opossum as he browsed the exhibits at Great Smoky Mountain National Park: the rare laminated Planus Vir Venandi, aka Flat Mr. Hunter-man. Mr. Hunter would like to apologize to anybody who gets creeped out by taxidermy animals. Mr. Hunter's person would like to apologize for the patchwork name she pulled together out of some online Latin dictionaries! ____________________ #mrhunter #travel #travelgram #nps #tennessee #mtts2018 #findyourpark #usaroadtrip #roadtrip #taxidermy #possum #opossum #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokynps #nationalparks #creatures #flatmrhunter ______________________ #mrhunterstravels #flatmrhunterstravels #mrhuntertakesthestates #flatmrhuntertakesthestates #mrhunterstravelswithsteve #flatmrhunterstravelswithsteve #mrhunteratnationalparks #mrhunterandcreatures #mrhunterandtaxidermy #mrhunterintennessee #mrhunterinthesouth

We all hope the youngster remembers something about the day he snapped the picture.🌿This ranger-led photo hike (comprised mostly of adults) illustrates a small slice of the park’s offerings. While the emphasis is naturally on children, several programs are just as good for big kids. I’m a big kid and a big fan of these park stewards. From night hikes to history hikes, the great outdoors is a pretty nice classroom.🌿 #greatsmokymountains #ig_greatshot #nationalparkservice #greatsmokynps #gorving #visitgatlinburg #865life #just_unitedstates #onlyintennessee #usa #instagramtennessee #getoutside #nationalparkgeek #igersusa #hey_ihadtosnapthat #iphone8plus #optoutside #travelphotography #wow_america #yourshotphotographer #instagram #tennessee #smphoto15 #findyourpark #jj_tennessee #tnvacation #madeintn #mobile_perfection #artofmobile

This image may look familiar to some of you, but it’s actually fresh and new. I recognized this tree along one of my favorite trails yesterday and immediately was reminded of a previous moment that I captured here, so many moons ago.. It led me to reflect back on this journey of mine so far and to look deeper at current feelings and thoughts.. Followed by the desire to look deeper at my life and at myself - my mind, body and spirit. And though I am determined to continue to grow and move with the flow.. I have come to a place where a deeper breath is needed. Moments of clarity to focus on my next steps on this path.. Steps that will lead me to new and exciting moments but also home to the familiar -the places and faces that are etched on the walls of my heart.. With that said, I’m taking a short break from social media.. To simply gather my pieces and sort out the best way possible to fulfill my purpose and passion. Just for the week. So, I hope you enjoy this trail and it encourages you to seek simplicity in beautiful places and faces as well.. My next post, will be this weekend.. From the sun filled, sand filled, wave filled.. North Carolina coast. 💚 Enjoy the week friends! ☺️

The schoolhouse in Little Greenbrier...you can almost hear mountain children fidgeting on the benches. Built in 1882, it remained in use until 1936. A popular (and excellent) ranger program is offered weekly during the summer. From the picnic area at Metcalf Bottoms, it’s a one mile gravel drive or a pretty half-mile hike along the stream. Any guesses which one I recommend? If you want more trail time, the famous Walker Sisters cabin is an easy mile walk from here. Look for a sign by the gate. #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokynps #themountainsarecalling #hey_ihadtosnapthat #smokymountains #onlyintennessee #smphoto15 #everything_imaginable_ #iamatraveler #explore_countryside #madeintn #52hikechallenge2018 #gsmnp #ig_countryside #865life #ig_countryside #friendsofthesmokies #gsmassoc #country_features #jj_windowsanddoors #tv_charmingfences #realsimple

"Back when I was younger, my eyes were full of life/ But now that I am older, I live at the speed of light/ Feels like the cycle never stops, feels like it's never gonna--Gotta get that fire, fire back in my bones... this is do or die/ The time has come to make a choice, and I choose JOY" - For King & Country . . Headed out for a weekend of rest, hiking, and exploration! This photo is from the segment of the Appalachian Trail leading from Newfound Gap overlook to The Jump Off.

Camping in a #nationalpark means we don’t pack much...but it’s fun tossing in a touch of #girlcamper...and my mister doesn’t mind a bit.🌺🌿🌺A change of plans found us on this Tents Only site, the verrrry last one left in Cades Cove. Pretty and perfect describes it and 99.9% of the campground. With or without an RV tho, everyone loves the cove. #greatsmokymountains #solarlights #cadescove #gorving #findyouraway #greatsmokynps #rvlife #nationalparkservice #mpowerd #lightuplife #nohookups #smokymountains #sprintervanconversion #sprintervan #camplikeagirl #rvlife #rvadventures #iamatraveler #ig_greatshot #gatlinburg #sistersonthefly #lynxlevelers #rv #themountainsarecalling #igersusa #just_unitedstates #ig_photooftheday #rsroadtrip #hey_ihadtosnapthat

“Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon?.. Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned.. Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains? Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?.. Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest.. Come taste the sun sweet berries of the Earth.. Come roll in all the riches all around you.. And for once, never wonder what they're worth.. The rainstorm and the river are my brothers.. The heron and the otter are my friends.. And we are all connected to each other.. In a circle, in a hoop that never ends.. How high will the sycamore grow?.. If you cut it down, then you'll never know.. And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon.. For whether we are white or copper skinned.. We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains.. We need to paint with all the colors of the wind...” (Colors of the Wind lyrics)

National park camping in the Great Smokies; our equipment list here at Elkmont is sparse. Flags, lantern, Yeti cooler, solar lights=essential. Chairs parked in the creek=climate control. Join a ranger + forty other outdoorsy types on the Little River Trail=a good day. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸 #elkmontcampground #4thofjuly #july4th #just_unitedstates #usa #campfire #madeintn #lynxlevelers #themountainsarecalling #gorving #sprintervanconversion #vanlife #getoutside #sprintercampervans #gocampingamerica #thegreatoutdoors #parkranger

“At the summit of Clingmans we entered a dim, thickest stand of evergreens smaller than telephone poles. I did not inquire why the growth was different from the majestic forest, brilliant with wild flowers, through which we had ascended. But the memory of that dark and closely growing timber has remained with me my whole life.” - Harvey Broome
