These pictures were shot with a 1.3 megapixel cellphone camera while driving downparked on the side of the road 9:30ish in the morning. On a clear day, you can see the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This isn’t quiet the view from my front yard as we live slightly below the top of what becomes a valley so our view is obscured by trees and a slight hill but it doesn’t take much to get a view of the Smokies.

Smoky Mountains from Morrell DriveFog...Is Stephen King in town?

That dark orange band is the mountains, not clouds. On a clear day, you can get a very nice view. On days that we cannot seem them, these mountains are obscured from our view by haze, pollution, fog, clouds, and busy minds. This view is a nice reminder of a treasure not a far distance from home that we completely under utilize and take for granted.

From great reading on our wonderful park, check out The Smoky Mountain Hiking Blog.

I love in the morning on Pelli Parkway when you can see a mountain, then a band of fog, and then another mountain below the fog. It is so pretty.
