Who would think that such ignoble looking creatures could possess such magic within those bodies?  Although this was not the first time in my life I’ve been entranced by fireflies (growing up in New Orleans, we called them “lightening bugs”), this was really a special occasion.  Within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Elkmont is […]

April 27, 2014 – The first time I had ever been on this trail was during Tremont’s Spring Wildflower Photography Workshop.  I didn’t get nearly enough of it then, so went back for more before the flowers weren’t as plentiful.  This is a .75 mile loop accessed by the Chimneys picnic area off of Newfound […]

(Hike done in February, 2014. – I’m just trying to get caught up!) This is probably the easiest of waterfalls to reach within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The short (1/2 mile) dirt trail is easy and accessed in back of the Sugarlands Visitors Center. The trail hugs the Little River most of the […]

The entrance and parking area for this trail is about a 1/2 mile north of the Sugarlands Visitors Center of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  It’s short (1/2 mile) but sweet, nestled in the mountains, with a paved and fully accessible path. Starting in the 1800’s, the Sugarlands Valley was once home to 100 […]

April 24, 2014 – Even though I’ve been obsessed with Cades Cove since I started exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, I always passed by the side road, Rich Mountain (Stop 8), which is adjacent to the Missionary Baptist Church (Stop 7). Since it’s a one-way road that goes back to Townsend with no […]

Last weekend Tremont Outdoor Resort held a Spring Wildflower Photography Workshop that I was blessed enough to be able to attend.  World famous photographer Wilson Reynolds and Knoxville’s f/32 Photo’s April Love and Brett Wells hosted the event to guide us in getting the best shots possible, and loaned out macro lens to really get […]

On Tuesday, I had a whole day to explore – rare for me on weekdays due to client work necessary to keep the gas tank filled.  I have seen so many gorgeous places more than once, but today I felt the need to be on a scenic road I’d never been on before – that’s […]

Yesterday I had to do some shopping, but decided to take the long, scenic route to Maryville to see how spring was coming along.  I stopped to cross a scenic swinging bridge (never can resist those), then headed out for the Foothills Parkway because I hadn’t been back there since fall colors were strutting their […]

Since my last blog post sharing some of my glorious adventures here, I’ve added these new pages to the website (linked below each preview picture): Foothills Parkway – Look Rock Laurel Falls Elkmont History Dixie Stampede As you can see, Tennessee is still keeping me plenty busy and I enjoy each outing! Since Malia’s Miles […]

I was honored to be invited to check out RVillage before it went live and apparently they’re as impatient as I am, so I’m glad to see they went ahead and started inviting folks into the community even while still in beta stage.  It actually is exciting to be part of something new like this […]
