Mildly Smoky Mountains

The Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee/North Carolina are known for scenes like the one above, where blankets of fog and low-lying clouds crawl across the mountains.  This smoky appearance occurs as humid air comes up from the Gulf of Mexico and then rapidly cools as the air reaches the higher elevations in the mountains.  While I certainly enjoy blue-sky kinds of days, I still liked these mildly smoky days in Tennessee as well!

  1. I have been fortunate to spend many days along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Beautiful landscapes. Cheers.
