Scenic Sunday #132: Looking Toward The Smokies

The view of the Smoky Mountains from the Foothills Parkway, Townsend, Tennessee. October 14, 2010.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

In mid-October of last year Betsy and I took a ride along the Foothills Parkway.  The Parkway is west of, and parallel to, the Smoky Mountains and provides some wonderful views of the mountains.  Since the Parkway is at a fairly low altitude, there wasn’t much color, but the scenery was beautiful nonetheless.

    21 inches of snow and it is still coming down. We have NEVER had anything like this in Oklahoma. Our record WAS 10.7 inches so we have blown that away!!!
