Little River in the Smokies



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Little River Road in the Smokies is one of our favorite drives. There are many pullouts that allow us to get out of the car and enjoy the view of the water rushing over and around rocks and boulders. The water is usually very clear and often, as in this picture, has an amazing color.

I love those pullouts where you can get out and stretch and take a deep breath of the fresh, mountain air and listen to the water splashing over the rocks. Very nice picture.

The water looks like liquid emeralds, such a lovely shade of green.
Wishing you and Betsy a lovely weekend.

Running waters in silence is just what I need today. Thanks for sharing the picture George. That river looks good for wild river rafting.

Lovely colour, George! You are right! And the water is very much alive and running swiftly to its destination, wherever that may be!
