The Great Smoky Mountains

Everytime we drive through the Smokies, I am amazed by the misty “smoke” that inspired the mountain’s name.  It is always there, whether we are driving through the mountains in the morning, afternoon, or evening.

    I never thought about the name, either, but it makes total sense after seen your photos and explanation.
