That’s what they call Fall in the Smoky Mountains, and the colors are spectacular!! We were able to vacation at the end of leaf season last year, and the colors were way better than our fall colors in the upper midwest. The funny thing is all the locals kept saying it was too bad we missed the colors a week earlier. And yet we were thrilled with the beauty of the trees in early November. This is my favorite shot from that trip – taken on a hike in the Roaring Fork area.
If you want to experience Leaf Season in Gatlinburg you can rent Southern Serenity and be only minutes from Roaring Forks and the Park.
