Great Smoky Mountains

A new month brings a new installment in my year-long Find Your Park series, this time focusing on my home park: Great Smoky Mountains. I spent five years exploring this park as a hiker, camper, volunteer, and intern. This time of year, the frequency of my visits would increase substantially as the hardwood forests would blaze into autumnal beauty. Living in Oregon now, these photos and words will have to serve as sufficient reminiscences to get me through another fall season away from the Smokes. Check it out on Exposure.
