|A view of Cherokee lake from Panther Creek State Park.|
Okay, after droning on about all of this I might as well show you what I am talking about. Some of these you should recognize from my Facebook page or even a few on previous posts here. Sit back and enjoy the view. And remember, a trip to the Great Smokey Mountains is just ticket away from some of the loveliest views in the world, and with fall approaching fast those views are going to be spectacular. (Think the Tennessee Board of Tourism will send the check now? )

<This was taken a year ago when the color was nearing its peak. In the distance you can see a strange cloud covering the view. That was a dust storm that was actually from Oklahoma that came all the way to East Tennessee. It actually made the air smell like my home state for a few days. Weird.
<This is a small bridge over Pather Creek at Pather Creek state park.
<This is one of my favorite pictures I have taken. I was up at the park taking pictures and left to go home, which isn't all that far from where this was taken. I pulled around a corner and saw this view and just knew it would make a great picture. I am glad I did it. In front of that red barn in the distance they have now built a new house which totally ruins the rustic feel to this image. Note: That little wooden fence to the left is the boundary of the park.
< ^ These two go together making a longer shot. The one to the left shows more of Cherokee lake.
<I just loved this shot looking eastward.
