Smoky Mountains



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

The Smokies are beautiful any time of the year, and Betsy and I visit as often as we possibly can. This October scene, from my archives, was taken from an overlook of Cheoah Lake. There's just a hint of autumn color, and the combination of sky, mountains and water show why the Smokies are so very popular.

Cudowny widok i chętnie bym stanęła na mostku i patrzyła na wodę w rzece. Pozdrawiam.
Lovely view and I would gladly have stood on the bridge and looked at the water in the river. Yours.
