A glimpse of the destination through the trees. . . As Charlie's Bunion comes into view, you can see tiny hikers climbing on the exposed cliffside.

Mingo Falls, probably the most rewarding waterfall for the amount of effort put forth 🤩 the trail is so short I don’t even think it should be called a trail rather than just a little climb and the waterfall is just wow 🙌🏼

While visiting American Eagle Foundation, we met so many awesome birds that were there for various reasons. One such bird that we met was Penny. She is at AEF due to finding herself in a trap that severely injured several toes that were later amputated. She is an absolutely gorgeous bird and almost at my favorite stage of a juvenile bald eagle transitioning to an adult. It was great to capture images of these raptors with a couple of good buddies. #Eagle , #BaldEagle , #Raptor , #Bird , #BirdOfPrey , #AmericanBaldEagle , #Best_Birds_of_IG , #Elite_Raptors , #Elite_Worldwide_Birds , #Exclusive_Wildlife , #BirdsOfIG , #BirdsOfInstagram , #BirdPhotography , #Wildlife_Inspired , #WildlifePhotography , #WildlifeIG , #WildlifeMag , #AEF , #AmericanEagleFoundation , #AEFEagles #BlackRapid , #GreatSmokyMountainsNationalPark , #GreatSmokyMountains , #SmokyMountains , #GSMNP , #NationalPark , #NationalParkService , #NPS , #Nature , #FindYourPark

Challenged with some high-key afternoon light, friend and photographer @jim_mcgovern_photography and I were buzzing about doing some scouting when we came upon this view along Newfound Gap Road in Great Smoky Mountains NP. The problem with high key light in landscape work is typically a lack of depth. However, because The Chimneys area of GSMNP recently experienced a bad fire, the black tree trunks and bare canopy was ideal for showing contrast in the landform. A couple hours later the texture and colors of the background ridges lost their detail as the light dropped. I really needed a longer telephoto lens to get creative with this one; however, another nugget of possibility learned from the simple act of accepting conditions and doing the work. #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokymountains #gsmnp #spring #newfoundgaproad

Everyone knows we feature #photography to build community here in #Knoxville and #EastTN but too many of y’all aren’t aware we sell #sustainable apparel that’s both environmentally and ethically produced. We received a shipment of 2,041 shirts from #Allmade today where we get our tri-blends. Using a T-Shirt Impact Calculator comparing to other leading tri-blend manufacturers, this order represents 81,640 gallons of water saved using 70% less than a typical conventional shirt. Chemicals were reduced by 2,857 oz or 179 lbs as these shirts are not chemically treated. Crude oil was reduced by 13,062 oz or 816 lbs by not being shipped internationally as these are USA 🇺🇸 materials. 12,246 water bottles were recycled not ending up in a landfill. And one of the most gratifying facts is that this order helps the people in #Haiti. Both women and men work in the LIFE facility where they’re paid up to 5 X more than other jobs in the area. We sell shirts that make a difference on the environment and in the lives of those in Haiti all while offering designs that are East Tennessee inspired. You can check us out online at 865LIFE.com or find us at a Pop Up Shop soon. ♻️ If you’ve bought from us would you please comment below what you think about our shirts and/or customer service so others will have an idea of what to expect. #865LIFE #MakeItBetter

Stopped at a few spots in GSMNP on our way down to our cabin we’re in for the remainder of this trip. Unfortunately this cabin is a total bait and switch job, which I’m sure Airbnb will be very interested to know about, but in the meantime we’re making the best of it. #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #subaruofamerica #seewhatsoutthere #getoutstayout #amongthewild #goatworthy #calltoadventure #heedthecall #thegreatoutdoors #chooseyourownadventure #optoutside #themountainsarecalling #keepitpublic #publiclandspublichands #publiclandsproud #publiclandowner

Get lost in the clouds at the top of #mountleconte in @greatsmokynps The #nationalpark is within a day’s drive for almost two-thirds of the U.S. population, which makes it an easy #roadtrip 14ish hours from #desmoines To beat the crowds (mostly) visit in the springtime months. May is perfect. It’s warm enough to be comfortable, and the flowers are in bloom. My favorite hike is to the top of Mount Le Conte. We initially only planned to hike to the Alum Cave, a concave cliff that is 80 feet tall. On the way, we passed by Arch Rock, which has been carved out through the years from repeated freeze-and-thaw cycles. The rhododendron were in full bloom, and the pink flowers popped here and there along the trail. Upon arrival at Alum Cave, we sat and ate our lunch, hoping to spot a peregrine falcon, which are known to soar in the area. We’d already been lucky enough to see a mama black bear with her twin clubs scurrying through the trees while driving into the park that morning. The weather was nice and it was early enough in the day, then we decided to continue another 2 ½ miles to Mount Le Conte, one of the area’s highest mountains. At the top, we were rewarded with magnificent views of spruce and fir trees, the hills of the Smokies and patches of fog here and there. Eventually, the fog rolled in too thick and obscured the view, so we headed back down the five-mile trail. #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #nationalparks #nps #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #tennessee #mountains #hike #hiking #alumcavetrail #alumcave #hiker #hikingadventures #nature #naturephotography #travel #traveling #travelholic #travelblogger #travelphotography #mytravels #mytravelstory #mytravelingsoul #wanderlust
