"Happiness is a cabin secluded deep in the mountains with a wrap around porch. Waking up and having a cup of coffee while staring out over the beautiful Smoky Mountains and hearing nothing but nature sing. I miss my mountains. I miss Tennessee….."
Can’t wait for FALL and all the beautiful colors that come along with it.

"Like two sparrows in a hurricane, Trying to find their way, With a head full of dreams and faith that can move anything, They’ve heard it’s all uphill, But all they know is how they feel, The world says they’ll never make it, love says they will"
Tanya Tucker (Two Sparrows)
You have heard and read about the state of Tennessee, Down in the southern states is where I wanna be, Where the valleys are so green and mountains are so tall, You will know just what I mean when you hear them say “You all” - Bill Monroe lyrics

Beautiful shot in Cades Cove. If you are visiting TN you must take a drive or hike one of the trails within the Cove - so beautiful and peaceful. Great place for photos.

There have been many reports of bear sightings in Great Smoky Mountains National Park recently. If you see a bear, please remember that for your safety, and the bear’s safety, you need to stay at least 150 feet away from the animal. For more information about what to do if you see a bear, check out http://www.nps.gov/grsm/naturescience/black-bears.htm, where you can find links to a video about bear safety.

There have been some beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the past few days in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. These times also happen to be the best times to see wildlife, such as white-tailed deer, in Cades Cove.Photo: Sunset in Cades Cove by Kristina Plaas, © 2014 All Rights Reserved.
