Purple mountain majesties

I spent this past weekend with two good friends, camping, hiking, and sightseeing in the Great Smoky Mountains near Gaitlinburg, Tennessee. Taking in the majesty of the mountains, the awe-invoking vistas, the peaceful meadows, the bright green tree-canopyed forests, the burbling brooks, the clear rushing streams, the graceful waterfalls and the tiny trail wildflowers, was refreshing to my soul, indeed!


  1. Beautiful pictures. Looks like you had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  2. Thanks Uncle Rick! I felt so blessed for the opportunity. Hope you have been able to enjoy the outdoors this summer too!

  3. Thanks Maria! My favorite, among many splendid pictures, is the one of the trail signs.
