Heading for the Hills

We will be heading over to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park tomorrow! This natural treasure is now celebrating its 75th anniversary. It is one of the few National Parks that does not charge an entrance fee. It also holds the distinction of being the most visited.

We plan to spend a couple of days there, see if some of the wildflowers are blooming, take a few pictures, and breathe the mountain air. We’re taking our hiking sticks in case we want to stroll a little bit on some easy trails. It has been years and years since we have visited, though it is just 40 miles from our home. Yeah, I know – shame on us! But in our defense, we used to visit frequently in the 1980s when hubby taught a photography course in the Smoky Mountain Field School.

I will be doing a scheduled post for tomorrow morning. Please check my Twitter link this week to see if I have any interesting tidbits to tell on our adventures!


  1. Hope that you'll have a wonderful time. Please do find lots of wildflowers blooming...

  2. Have a wonderful time Donna! I bet it'll be beautiful this time of year! And take lots of photos with your new camera.

  8. Hi there Donna! So nice to meet you via Blog land. :) I hope you are enjoying your Smoky Mnt. visit. So happy that you stopped by Rebecca's Lovely Shop for some primitive shopping fun.
