Deep into the pandemic, we finally broke free and got in the car. After 30 plus years of saying “we’re going to see the leaves change in the Smokies”, we finally did it.
This colorful landscape is the wildly popular and overly photographed Linville Viaduct.
We also did a little hiking – well, we had to walk up the path to Grandfather Mountain rather than park at the top and walk up. No matter which peak we visited, we found people so very happy to be out in the open. With the wind blowing and no close contact, we went all in for some outside time.
