Finding new places in the Smokies

New Place #1 ... If you've never been to Spruce Flat Falls in the Smokies before ... well you should head on out there.  It's not spectacular ... but the setting and the beauty of it makes it worthwhile.  And it's only a mile to get there :)








The second place ... well you'll just have to wait until tomorrow ... don't you just love cliffhangers :)

Clingmans Dome ... well it's not new to me ... but it's a first for trying to create a panoramic from the tower. :)
