Cades Cove Peach Blossom⠀⠀ Peach Tree⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cades Cove - Great Smoky Mountains National Park (March 15, 2019)⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the first flower I have photographed this year, and probably the first one I have in a few years. As I drove Hyatt early in the morning, these blossoms caught my eye. Later that day, I had to stop. At first, I was convinced this was a cherry tree, as I had never heard of peach trees in the cove. However, this morning, I learned there’s at least two - probably growing from someone throwing out a peach pit or planting one intentionally. Either way, they caught my eye.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feel free to share and check out my page.⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ #greatsmokymountains #smokymountains #gsmnp #friendsofthesmokies #findyourpark #cadescove #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #visitgatlinburg #gatlinburg #865life #surftennessee #adventureappalachia #visitmysmokies #nationalparklife #instagramtennessee #tristaradventures #onlyintennessee #tennessee #outdoorlife #naturephotography #canonphotography #canon #canonusa #blossom #peach #peachtree #flower #pink #spring at Great Smoky Mountains National Park

I've been OCD posting my fish to show how well my son's fly's work. Not to toot my own horn. It's never been about me! Pretty sure I've made a strong case the past couple of seasons. Hopefully everyone has a safe, and successful season. If anyone ever wants bugs that produce dm me. Gonna pump my ig brakes for a min😂 my apologies for the over kill. Only thing savage about me is my 300 win.mag and the flys Eric's tied for me. I can't help but leave it with a post of my most memorable and pb Brown on a flyrod I never expected 50 followers, no less over a 1000. Thanks for putting up with me, it's very humbling. Thank's again, and tight-lines everyone🎣 Cheers🍻 #thatsawrap #flytyingjunkie . . . . . #streamerjunkie #familyties #catchandrelease #browntrout #onthefly #flyfishing #troutbum #flytying #fatherandson #flugbindning #fluefiske #whatgetsyououtdoors #nature #easttennessee #friendsofthesmokies

JAR...At first I was uninspired with boring jars but then I remembered the many jars of yumminess in my cabinet! I love stocking up on the jellies, molasses, relish and pickles offered in the visitor centers at Great Smoky Mtn Nat’l Park...plus I get to give a little back since funds go towards the park’s operations! It’s a win-win! 77/365 #fms_jar #fmspad #littlemomentsapp #fms #fmsphotoaday #photo365 #2019 #photoadaychallenge #foodsofthesmokies #gsmnp #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokynps #friendsofthesmokies

Falls along the path may have been better than Rainbow Falls itself

Had a great time hiking in the Smokies on Friday- 2.7 miles feels a lot farther when it is all uphill!

(Paraleptophlebin adoptiva) The Blue Quill normally don't start coming off until early April around here. This one decided he's all ready for spring, like we all are!! But it's a solid addition to your dries (16s-20s) if you don't use them all ready. #matchthehatch #mayfly . . . . #howlowcanyougo #golow #entomology #flytyingjunkie #friendsofthesmokies #whatgetsyououtdoors #flyfishing #fatherandson #flytying #flugbindning #fluefiske #ilovethisgame #easttennessee #fishing #river #gettwisted #hillbilly #hippie #staywierd #goodvibesonly at The Laboratory

From pushbuttons and floaters when he was a kid, to double hauling phat streamers 30 years later till the sun comes up. Eric has been as good of a fishing bro a man could ask for!!

Smoky Mountain Clouds⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cades Cove - Great Smoky Mountains National Park (March 15, 2019)⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ It'd been too long since I had made it up to Cades Cove. I had Friday morning off, so I decided to go up early. When I got there, the clouds were absolutely insane! Clouds like this just kept coming across the mountain up until about 10:30ish. Then, it was like the snap of a finger, and the sun was out bright and few clouds remained. Flowers are starting to pop up, and the mountains seem to be coming alive. It's definitely a different feel up there.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feel free to share and check out my page.⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ #greatsmokymountains #smokymountains #gsmnp #friendsofthesmokies #findyourpark #cadescove #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #visitgatlinburg #gatlinburg #865life #surftennessee #adventureappalachia #visitmysmokies #nationalparklife #instagramtennessee #tristaradventures #onlyintennessee #tennessee #outdoorlife #naturephotography #canonphotography #canon #canonusa #clouds #mountains #landscapephotography #landscape #cloudformations #morning at Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Where’s your favorite place to spend golden hour? 🌅 • We spent hours meandering The Island in Pigeon Forge. The entire area was adorable with little shops, restaurants, and rides. • I could easily spend every night outside in the open air exploring this city. Tell me what you’d be up to 👇🏼 at The Island in Pigeon Forge

Flashing back to the ground covered in flowers looking like snow & a pair of deer that cared little about my presence. A spring day 7 years ago when I broke away to the Smokies to see the early spring wildflowers. Here in Colorado now the ground is actually covered in snow.... ——————————————————————————— Camera: Nikon D300 Lens: Nikon 24-120 Exposure: 1/15 second at f/16 ISO: 1600 Processed in Nikon Capture NX2 & Photoshop CS4 ——————————————————————————— #flashbackfriday #photooftheday #nature #spring #explore #naturephotography #naturelovers #hiking #neverstopexploring #liveoutdoors #wildernessculture #optoutside #findyourpark #nikonnofilter #stayandwander #naturephotos #springvibes #springmood #greatsmokymountains #ishootraw #nationalparkgeek #amongthewild #weareparks #findyouradventure #natureasart #national_park_photography #instagramtennessee #adventurethatislife #earthescope #friendsofthesmokies

This is a common scene on the Cherokee Indian Reservation, just a few minutes from Bryson City. The elk are starting to migrate here too. We saw one swimming in Fontana Lake just a couple months ago. I had to stop driving one day to let an elk cross the road here in Bryson City. People are so respectful of these wild animals. I love living surrounded by this natural beauty♥️ .

Sunrise from the Jumpoff. Located on top of Mount Kephart. On a short 3/10 of a mile spur trail from the Boulevard Trail close to its intersection with the Appalachian trail. Most easily accessible from the newfound gap parking lot on state Route 441 from Gatlinburg to Cherokee North Carolina. A secret jewel of the great Smoky Mountains national Park :-)

Oh how I love these mountains! This elk jam is in Cherokee, NC where I once brought Blue Oyster Cult onto the stage at a biker rally.
