I never got to photograph the rhododendrons last year due to being away in Europe all last summer and boy oh boy am I glad that I had the opportunity this year. The way purple pairs with the green plants all around and the blue hues of the rolling mountains is certainly a treat for the eye #visitsmokies #visitnc #visitasheville #visittennessee #tennesseephotography #tennesseephotographer #ncphotography #ncphotographer #roanmountain #northcarolina #tennessee #naturaltennessee #blueridge #blueridgemoments #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #romanticasheville #wnc #wncmountains #rhododendron #wncphotography #wncphotographer #sonygang

A short stroll off the side of the Mountains to Sea trail resulted in a 100ft rock face with this epic view! Sometimes it's worth the extra few steps off the main trail to get to the good stuff!

Ever wonder why there is no entry fee to the smokies vs other national parks? According to the park service, the existence of Newfound Gap is a primary reason why the Smokies don't have an entrance fee. To understand why, you'd have to go back to the time before the formation of the national park. At the time, the state of Tennessee, which had jurisdiction of the road and only agreed to transfer ownership of it on the condition that the national government would never levy a toll on the road. Newfound Gap Road was one of the only dependable routes through the mountains, so Tennessee ensured that a fee would never hamper transportation. To this day, vacationers can enjoy the beauty of the Smoky Mountains without paying a dime. . . . . . . . . . . . #instagramtennessee #homesweettn #everythingimaginable #explore_landscapes #earth_shotz #usaprimeshot #smokymountains #newfoundgap #explore #exploremore #exploretheworld #greatsmokymountains #ipulledoverforthis #visitsmokies #igers_southeast #naturaltennessee #landscapephotography #madewithmefoto #hoyatough #teamtokina #duryscamerastore #onlyintennessee #gsmnp

The beautiful synchronous fireflies of the smoky mountains. We avoided the total chaos of the Smoky Mountain Elkmont firefly lottery, so @rjfarrell629 did her normal (amazing) level of due diligence and we went off to blaze our own trail, away from the hordes of people. She spotted this little hidden waterfall, and we waited for the show to start. #smokymountains #instagramtennessee #fireflies #familyadventures waterfalls

“Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers, that grow so incredibly high...” (John Lennon/Paul McCartney) Yep, “Tangerine trees and marmalade skies”! The blooms on Jane Bald at Roan Mountain, the sun filtered by smoke from Canadian wildfires.
