Great Smoky Mountains Day 2

October 27, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

First full day in the mountains.  I have a mission; Waterfalls!  Unfortunately for me it hasn't rained here in a while so the river flows are down, but we are here to have a great time and I'm at the very least going to get a good hike out of it.



I thought it would be easy to capture the running water.  What I wasn't prepared for was getting to the falls at the right time to capture the right light.  Light angle can be very important.  I think I will try again later in the week.  Soho and Mingo Falls.

In the pursuit we drove the southern part of Blue Ridge Pkwy.  The leaves are in the middle of turning and the elk are grazing along the side of the road.  Amy and I found a beautiful grassy field to lay a blanket and have a picnic.  The sun is shinning it's 70 with a cool breeze blowing through the trees.  Leaves are falling everywhere.  And it's getting better everyday!

Went for a short (1 hr) trek up a mountainside trail.  Heart rate at 145.  Time to slow down!



Not taking as many pictures as I had expected.  Really enjoying the scenery.








Looks like another great day in the Smoky's!  Tomorrow we are off to Cades Cove!
