Day two of our trip to the mountains, consisted of a drive through Smoky Mountain National Park. We were hoping that the higher that we went in elevation, the more the leaves would have changed their color and the temperature would be cooler…we were right. Sometimes it is a little hard for us to tell whether the fog over the mountains is lifting or if it is moving in to stay. Instead of stopping at a few look out points on the way over to the other side, we decided that we would wait it out and see if the visibility improved at all. It didn’t, in fact it got worse. That was okay though, it all added to the fall experience. We stopped at Newfoundland Gap for a few photos, but the wind cutting through was freezing and we all raced back to the car…. 🙂
