Old Trees

You can find them at the Chimneys picnic area in the park.  I’m told this part of the Smoky Mountain National Park has some of the oldest trees in the park, virgin hardwoods.

It was a beautiful day when I visited.  It was a little chilly but most importantly it was foggy.  So when you walked through the forest it was very quiet, as if you were in a room created by fog with just trees all around.  Very few people were there, it was an ethereal experience.  The trees and the fog made for some fun snapshots.
