After spending some time on the Blue Ridge Parkway and in North Carolina we headed west over to Great Smoky Mountain National Park. What a pretty place to visit in the fall!
We were lucky enough to arrive during the Elk Rut.
We got to do some trout fishing in the National Park. Fishing in the streams and rivers of this park was really fun and took us off the hiking trail to some pretty and more remote spots.
Here I am at the top of the park looking out over the mountains. There was a great observation tower, it was a tough hike to get up to it!
Great Smoky Mountain National Park is the most visited National Park in the country!
We also got some local culture in when we stopped by a plow festival at a farm near our campground. Here's a square dance club performing.
Next we're off to Atlanta!
