Tennessee features some of the most exquisite landscape on the planet, and I recently made the hike up to the LeConte Lodge in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Waking up at Zoder’s in Gatlinburg, saying “Hi” to Cesar the parrot, who has been here 31 years and says “Hello!” back to me each year. Also enjoying hot coffee before the hike up the mountain.
Hiking down Alum Cave trail from LeConte Cabins. I loved the sunset challenged by “smoke” of clouds and mist. Great tradition that is a part of my annual journey.
I encourage everyone to be active and explore the beauty surrounding them; pictures can’t do it justice.
