Tennessee: The Great Smoky Mountains

A few weeks ago my husband and I traveled down to Tennessee and North Carolina for the week, and Spring was in full bloom. So I basically got 2 Spring’s this year, because by the time we got back home to MA, everything was awash in chartreuse and buds and loveliness. Something about this year is really making me savor it. We spent a few days exploring The Great Smoky Mountain National Park and I spent a lot of time thinking about its small subdued beauty in comparison to the scale and grandeur of other parks I’d visited like Yosemite. Here’s some shots from our first day in the park.
