Archive picture: What a gorgeous day!

That day, we went to the Mountain Life Festival in Okonaluftee (North Carolina side of the Smokies), after we stopped at Newfound Gap to enjoy the view from the State Line, then we had lunch in the Collins Creek picnic area, drove to Clingmans Dome to enjoy the layered views of the mountains, and on the way back we got stuck in a monstrous traffic jam caused by the Grand Rod Run in Pigeon Forge. It took us 1 hour for the last 5 minutes home, but we saw lots of antique cars again ;-)

I took 190 pictures today which are not sorted yet, and I already have 60 from the Grand Rod Run waiting to be uploaded. Where do I start??? :D

PS. I almost forgot the rest of the pictures I took in Cades Cove the other day, and the ones from Tremont, and the last visit in Elkmont, and the ever changing view from our balcony, and, and, and ...

ARGH! Life is tuff! :-)))

Also, das hätte ich auch gemacht, nämlich mal kurz in Newfound Gap angehalten. Da lässt sich wenigstens noch ein spalt luft finden zum durchatmen, während es in Okonaluftee ziemlich stickig gewesen sein muss bei oa koana luftie.
