Friday, July 19 - Great Smoky Mountains National Park, North Carolina ( @greatsmokynps ). Last but not least, the most visited National Park in the United States, also known as “The Wildflower National Park.” Wonderful to be back in our own home state and see so many trees again, even though it’s bittersweet, signaling the end our two week adventure. Still, we had a good night, slept in, and enjoyed a beautiful and fun morning before the final drive home. + + We are filled with gratitude from this trip. I pray we never take for granted the gift of living in a free nation that has protected and made accessible for over 100 years some of the most spectacular places on earth. Thank you to everyone at the @nationalparkservice for all they do (with limited budgets) for all of us. +++ + + + #beintentional #liveadventurously #explore #goexplore #getoutside #optoutside #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokymountains #nationalpark #nationalparks #findyourpark #wildflowers #elk #snail #nature #creation #godisgood #amdg

The @sixtyonepark farmhouse used to be the home of Cecil Plott. Mr. Plott worked for the Southern Railroad and was the station agent/telegrapher for the Bryson City Train Depot. The original Southern Railway line is now underwater but in the 1940s there was a major line relocation project resulting in a huge trestle over Lake Fontana. You can paddleboard or kayak out from the Almond Boat Dock and watch the 1702 steam engine pass over the trestle on Friday and weekend mornings! @brysoncityoutdoors rents paddleboards and kayaks right at the boat dock by the hour. 🚣‍♀️🏄🏻‍♀️ Just remember to put your phone or camera in a waterproof pouch! #brysoncity #traintrestle #828isgreat #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark

Great few days of hiking, exploring and searching for waterfalls with my 3 Junior Rangers. Vesper and Estella added a new National Park and all 3 of them earned their badges for Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Unexpectedly bc it was a last minute decision was how spectacular the roaring fork motor nature trail was for all of us. If you only have a day in this National Park, make this a must do activity. #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #nationalparkservice #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #nps #goparks #radparks #everykidinapark #kidsinparks #adventurekids #juniorranger #tennessee #explorerkids #optoutside #hiking #hikingwithkids #roamingoklahomans #thesmokies #hikethesmokies

Had a so much fun at @greatsmokynps with the kiddos! We hiked to a waterfall, went to the highest point in the park, but couldn’t see anything because of the fog... still can’t figure out why they’re called The Smoky Mountains 😂 Great last day of vacation. Ready to see the rest of the @nationalparkservice parks!

This picture is from a month ago when there was concern that this gal had lost one of her three cubs. Yesterday I saw her and it was confirmed. She only has two now. A friend also told me yesterday another of the mothers we’re so fond of had lost one of her three as well. There’s just so many perils in the wild it’s amazing any of them make it. There’s a lot of perils in our world too. Many things can go wrong and drastically change the direction of one’s life. A simple doctors visit can change your world in an instant. If someone that’s sick or going through a rough time comes to your mind right now while your reading this will you stop and pray for them. Perhaps pray that God will grant them grace to be made well. 🙏🏻 Thank you! Have a great weekend everyone! 😊 #smokymountainbears #blackbears #bears #wildlife #wildlifeplanet #animalelite #extreme_wildlife #wildlifephotography #exclusive_wildlife #gsmnp #smokymountainphotography #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #nationalparks #nature_brilliance #naturephotogrqphy #allnatureshots #nanpapix #bestnatureshots #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #explore #outdoorlife #landscapes #capturelandscapes #instagramtennessee @instagramtennessee #865life @865life

After a long day of hiking and exploring, nothing compares to unwinding by the campfire and watching fireflies... #clubtails #firesidechat #sorrynotsorry #onlyintennessee #glamping 🖤😂🖤 . I’m spamming the hell out of IG before I move. I’ve got too many on deck and too many more beautiful ones to come.

Elk once roamed the southern Appalachian mountains and elsewhere in the eastern United States. They were eliminated from the region by over-hunting and loss of habitat. The last elk in North Carolina was believed to have been killed in the late 1700s. In Tennessee, the last elk was killed in the mid-1800s. Reintroduction of elk into Great Smoky Mountains National Park began in 2001 when 25 elk were brought from the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area along the Tennessee-Kentucky border. In 2002, the park imported another 27 animals. Most of the elk are located in the Cataloochee area in the southeastern section of the park. Over the past decade, the herd has grown and spread into other parts of the park. These days, you’re just as likely to see elk grazing in the fields next to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center, in the lowland fields about 1 mile up US 441 in the National Park, or in the Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center area just north of the visitor center. These are a few images of the Oconaluftee Elk taken July 13. #elk #outdoorphotography #oconaluftee #nature #wildlifephotography #d7200 #nikonusa #gsmnp #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark

Sometimes the energy of a place is so powerful that you know you’ll be spending your whole life trying to get back there. Today I fell in love with the Smokies. With 10.4 miles down on the AT (my new record), I just don’t think I’ve ever been in a place this green and beautiful and unique. The biodiversity here is just incredible. The whole forest feels alive, even the smoke—the fog—the reason they call it the Great Smoky Mountains. ⛰ _____ #keepnaturewild #wildkeepers #womenwhohike #wanderwomen #choosemountains #nature #hiking #veganhiker #travel #vegantravel #explore #solotravel #solofemaletraveler #solofemaletravel #leaveitbetter #adventureenthusiasts #takemoreadventures #themountainsarecalling #hikingadventures #KNW #findyourpark #SoFeTravel #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokymountainsnps #forestbound

No matter how many times you go somewhere in the Smokies it’s always different. I’ve stood in this spot countless times but on this morning fog was rolling over the mountain top. I saw a break in the fog and waiting until it passed over me and silhouetted the trees perfectly while giving a window to the mountain ridges below. • • • • #lazyshutters #allbeauty_addiction #landscapephoto #landscape_photography #outdoortones #exploreourearth #visualofearth #landscape_specialist #landscape_hunter #landscape_capture #landscapecaptures #landscapephotographer #landscapephotomag #ig_landscape #amongthewild #bestmountainartists #stellar_shots #trailchat #splendidearth #sunrise 🌅 #sunrise_sunsets #sunrise_sunset_photogroup #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #smokies #tennessee #tennesseelife #tennesseephotographer

Most people don’t know that the Smoky Mountains are part of the Appalachian temperate rainforest - with dense and lush vegetation, towering trees, and ample rainfall. On any given day, it can rain and be sunny dozens of times! Keri & Aaron’s wedding in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the perfect example of this. When we arrived, there was sunshine and blue skies. Then, there were loud rolls of thunder in the distance during their ceremony, and we knew rain was on its way. Right after their wedding, it began sprinkling, so everyone went inside Spence Cabin for the reception. It poured for a solid 30 minutes. Then, a huge patch of blue skies opened up and we scurried back outside for photos with the bride & groom. You could still feel big drips of water trickling off the leaves of the trees.

Some shots from Great Smoky Mountain National Park. 📸🏔 Spent last weekend with @pjean_photography and insta-less Philip on a spontaneous road trip to wherever we could go. As we were about to go home, we decided to head an extra hour and a half north west to check off another bucket list item: Great Smoky. More shots to come from our other stops 🙏🏼 @greatsmokynps • • • • #photography #photo #photos #photographer #instagram #picoftheday #canon #atlantaphotographers #naturephotography #naturephotos #nature #camping #wildernessculture #campingofficial #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #smokymountains #tennessee #tennesseephotography #explore #roadtrip

Infrared Thursday This is the Cable Mill in Cades Cove - Great Smoky Mountains. Peter Cable built his grist mill in the 1870s. He also used this waterwheel to power a sawmill as well. It was a bit dark when I made the image so the shutter speed was 4 seconds which made the water wheel appear to be moving very fast! #smokymountains #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #infrared #infraredphotography #infraredphoto #mill #gristmill #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #cadescove
