A couple of weeks ago Betsy and I got up very early in the morning to drive to the Smokies. We knew that if we could get to the Gatlinburg Bypass, we might catch the sun coming up over the mountains, and if we were really lucky, we might capture some fog in the valley. You can judge how well we did from the picture above.
We had to get up at 4 o’clock in the morning to make it to the bypass by sunrise. At least the traffic through Knoxville was fairly light at that hour of the morning.
As we stood at the overlook getting these pictures we decided getting up that early was worthwhile, but I must admit that we slept in the next morning.
