If you've ever wondered why the Great Smoky Mountains are called "Smoky", here is the reason.
This isn't a botched photo. This is the view from our deck this morning and has been the view from our deck every morning for the past week. How about a few trees for some perspective?
When we're not socked in by the "smoke", this view looks like this.
Don't feel sorry for us with our clouded views. The smoke burns off mid-morning and we do get this view frequently and all day long.
I grew up in Knoxville and spent many wonderful days exploring the Smokies. I live in Florida now, but do miss my mountains.ReplyDelete
I grew up with fog. I still live on the coast and still have fog. When it burns off, the beauty revealed is just wonderful. Loved the photos.ReplyDelete
Stunning! I was last there at around age 4! Would love to go back! Lovely pics and I didn't know the reason for the name... very interesting!ReplyDelete
That view is worth waiting for.ReplyDelete
Wow. It's like the fog let's you ease into the day...enjoy!ReplyDelete
Beautiful - love mountain living. Fog does a similar thing here (CA).ReplyDelete
Oh, I haven't been to the smokies since I was 10 - I would say that I'm overdue!! That last shot is just beautiful!!ReplyDelete
Funny. I laughed at the first photo. An actual picture of the "smoke" in Smokey Mountains. You live in a beautiful part of the country.ReplyDelete
