I spent a couple days in the Smoky Mountains which was enough time to see some of the wild animals and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage of this spot of the Appalachians. With abundant rainfall the Smoky Mountains are the most biodiverse spot in the entire continental United States.
We’ll eventually make it make back to this area at a slower paced time when the leaf-peeper crowd isn’t out in full force, even if we don’t see the stunning fall colors. I’m sure we’ll be able to significantly add to this page (even the native salamanders).
