Found in the border between Tennessee and North Carolina is one of the beauty Mother Nature has given us. The Great Smoky Mountains Park got its name after the blue mist that always seems to hover around the peaks and valleys. It is truly a splendor one must witness; no wonder it is the most visited park in the entire country.
As detailed by Gary L’Heureux, these mountains are home of over 100 species of trees and flowering plants. Aside from the abundant flora, a range of species of fauna is also found here. Hundreds of species of birds crowd these marvelous mountains. Adding the splendid display of nature are the waterfalls that is found there namely the Grotto, Laurel, Abrams, Rainbow, and Mingo drawing over 200,000 visitors per year. You will surely won’t hurt a foot hiking here for you will be entertained by nature’s aesthetic display.
Camping is never the same with the old trees and the sound of its little waterfalls and brooks nearby. It is truly an escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. Gary L’Heureux would say, peace and quiet is truly different from here for the only noise you will hear are those that reminds you where you are rooted, with these trees who are with our forefathers in the past.
Gary L’Heureux enumerated reasons why you should not miss out the beauty of the Great Smokey Mountains Park and it surely is a wonder you should experience for yourself. As stated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt “There are trees here that stood before our forefathers ever came to this continent; there are brooks that still run as clear as on the day the first pioneer cupped his hand and drank from them.”
