Wow...just look at that view. Mountains for miles...90 to be exact! The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is amazing. January is a great time to visit too because it is the month with the least number of visitors (no crowds) and the best views from Newfound Gap (visibility of 90 miles compared to only 20 during the summer months)! Take/rent a 4WD vehicle and wear warm clothes - temps at the top of the mountain are 10-15 degrees cooler than in the towns below. You gotta go sometime...very refreshing. I'll be posting more pictures of our amazing Smoky Mountain adventure soon.
