Sunset in the Smoky Mountains

All the moisture in the air from evaporation and precipitation makes the Smoky Mountains a temperate rain forest, and gives us the mist that mixes the light of the sun in wonderful ways.

Okay, now we’ll shut up and just watch the sunset 🙂

About Carrie Waxler

I've worked for Gatlinburg Falls since March 2011. Lived in TN since 1996. I have now hiked Mt. LeConte three times. I've been on every trail that leads to the top. The last one we hiked up the Boulevard. I have walked my first 2.7 miles on the Appalachian Trail. Only 2176 miles to go. I plan to hike the Appalachian Trail when my children graduate. I also love lake kayaking on Cherokee Lake and Douglas Lake. We take our kayaks camping to middle Tennessee as well for river kayaking. I love talking to guests from the places I've visited or lived. Brings back many good memories. I love to be where people are having fun.
