Jumping fences is a young buck's game. I was talking to some more local photographers and they said that this guy has had the injury for several years. It heals over partially throughout the year and he reopens it during the rut. He was walking on it just fine while I was watching.

Hands down... The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the most magical places we’ve ever explored! Every place we stopped was better than the last and the mountain stream meandering alongside the drive was spectacular. The drive alone made the BRP a quick distant memory with so much more to see and do IMO and less crowds. We MUST come back again when we have more time to explore all of it’s amazing treasures. . . . . . . #greatsmokeymountains #gsmnp #mountaindrive #scenicdrive #roadtrip #nature #themountainsarecalling #landscape #amazing #view #mountains #landscapes #naturelover #nature_seekers #cntraveler #mountainstream #guardiantravelsnaps #beautifuldestinations #awesome_earthpix #nc #northcarolina #visitnc #naturenc #ourstatemag

Early mornings along the serene creeks in the Smoky Mountains are pure bliss. Cool air lingering in the valley, sunlight illuminating the canopy of trees, and not a single person in sight.

Our first afternoon in the Smokies, we found Dolly (the statue) and did the amazing drive along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail in the National Park. Although a good hike is more my pace, this was an extremely fulfilling cruise with lots of great stops and points to explore along the way. I loved seeing all the natural water works and settlements along the creek amongst amazing old growth forest and the kids loved that it was a short enough venture to be back at the pool by dark! #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #gsmnp #roaringforkmotornaturetrail #roaringfork #tennessee #gatlinburg #gatlinburgtennessee #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #goparks #radparks #americasbestidea #waterfall #roamingoklahomans #greatsmokies #youretheonlytenisee

Something told me to head up to the Mingus/Floyd cemetery today to see if the snakes were out. My gut didn’t lie. There were three Timber Rattlers hanging out getting some sun. #GSMNP

Hike 38/52 #LTC Lookout Tower 13/21 #WC100 Waterfall 20/100 Mile 177.2/300 Elevation gain 403ft Yesterday it actually did rain all day - the weatherman finally got it right 😂. I went out in search of another waterfall and #firetower to check off my #carolinamountainclub challenge lists. The first stop was Indian Creek Falls in #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark (swipe for photo). We also passed Tom Branch Falls on the way, and about 283,647 tourists headed out for tubing down Deep Creek. ——— The second stop was Barnett Knob tower off the #blueridgeparkway. This tower is unique in that instead of a live-in cab like many of the towers in the area, there was a small cabin at the base for the lookout to live in. Rain and fog blocked any real views, but the hike was still absolutely worth it. ——— 📍this is Tsalaguwetiyi land . . . . . #nationalforestweek #GSMNP #52hikechallenge #wildeast #southernappalachia #myblueridge #publiclandowner #mypubliclands #828isgreat #WNC #ashevilletrails #optoutside #outtherepodcast #gooutsideandplay #sweatydirtyhappy #forceofnature #girlswhohike #allwomenalltrails #hikelikeagirl #adventurelikeagirl #fatgirlshiking #fatandoutdoorsy #takingupspaceoutdoors #towerchasing

It's official - I'm headed to the Smokies in the middle of October. I know that's peak season but I won't love it as much if I don't go in the fall. As a girl born and raised in the Mid-Atlantic...I love my fall foliage. On my list of things to do are: Clingman's Dome and Cades Cove, Abram Falls hike, the Jump Off hike, and my one long day hike will be Ramsey Cascades. I will also see all 3 Tennessee side visitor centers. Is the NC one worth the drive? Are there any other hikes I MUST do? Or any other sites? Must eats? I'm staying in Cosby so not far from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. PS I don't think I can handle Mount Cammerer lol. . . . #adventureseason #gooutside #goplay #optoutside #smokymountains #gsmnp #smokies #vacationadvice #hikesforviews #findyourtrail #hikingseason #mountaingirls #solotraveler #solohiker #earthpix #adventureislife #adventureiscalling #naturewalk #discovertheworld #itravel #nationalparkgeek #waterfalls #hikesforfalls #smokymountainnationalpark #passionforadventure #mtnchicks #ihike #hikersofinstagram #allthetrails #fallfoliage

We LOVE this picture Melody Cook Photography captured from one of our summer weddings. What a relief it is when someone comes to your rescue on your big day. Even the smallest of things can seem to go wrong, but just remember at the end of the day you’re still getting married! 💖 • • • • • • Photography: @melcook12 #Sunshineandsummertime #CoopersCoveAtHeritagePark #CoopersCove #TownsendTennessee #TownsendTN #Fall #fallwedding #spring #springbride #SmokyMountainWedding #WeddingCake #ColorScheme #WeddingCupCakes #Reception #MountainWedding #GSMNP #GSMNPWedding #FirstDance #MountainWeddingVenue #pinterest #pinterestbride #SouthernBride #GreatSmokyMountains #WallandTN #PigeonForge #SeviervilleTN #Instagram

A cairn is a man-made pile (or stack) of stones. The word cairn comes from the Scottish Gaelic: càrn. Cairns have been and are used for a broad variety of purposes, from prehistoric times to the present. In modern times, cairns are often erected as landmarks, a use they have had since ancient times. However, since prehistory, they have also been built and used as burial monuments; for defense and hunting; for ceremonial purposes, sometimes relating to astronomy; to locate buried items, such as caches of food or objects; and to mark trails, among other purposes. . . . . . #cairns #gsmnp #trailmarkers #balance #littleriver #rivercairns #adventuresofanauslanner #fullexpatlife #exploreyourworld #nature #naturephotography #riverlife #ilovetotravel #ilivetotravel #tennessee #gatlinburgtennessee #townsend #ecolife #cairnsofinstagram

Just got a test batch of stickers with our logo. Since kids, as well as grown-ups, are adding fun stickers to their devices, I thought we jump in on the action. I only have eight left, so if you’d like to snag one for FREE, send us a direct message with your mailing address. Based on demand, we’ll order more. Thanks to @stickermule for printing them! #businesstobusiness #b2b #stickertrend #decorateyourdevice #logosticker #mactabbycatcafe #gsmnp #hplaptop #ipad #wingedstar #southernrestyle

At the Bolt abode, we often rotate vacations with staycations to save money. Enjoy this pic of a Bolt Staycation circa 2013 from a day trip to #Townsend , TN. . I’ll admit it, I am a homebody. So when we do staycations at the Bolt abode, it is honestly a little less stressful for me as a mom to not have to plan for an out of town adventure and just be able to wing it from day to day. . This day trip to Townsend, Tennessee is an example of how we do family time without breaking the bank. We live in one of the most beautiful places in the country, so why not take advantage of the beauty we are surrounded by. As you can see, the kids were a little more cooperative for pictures back then. . We waded in the water, skipped rocks, hiked, fished and basked in the sun! It was a rejuvenating time for this momma!! Now that the littles are not so little, one is a senior in high school and the other is a sophomore in college, these family trips are harder to come by. . What is your favorite staycation memory? . #enjoythemwhileyoucan #familyfirst #liveinthemoment #timeslowdown #carpediem #Familytime #GreatSmokeyMountains #TimeFlies #QualityTime #ourbackyard #GSMNP
