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.
