virtual hiking

No time to plan a hike
or just too hot?
How about a virtual hike
to the beautiful Smoky Mountains...

Let Doug McFalls at Reflections of the Smokies be your virtual guide. Doug hikes these trails daily, living and working atop Mt. LeConte in the lodge. Or visit him in person, take one of the many trails to the top of Mt. LeConte, spend the night or just go for the day. You won't be disappointed!

Or you could go on this virtual video hike with the llama train carrying supplies to the top of Mt. LeConte.

Great virtual hike, Susan... I love the Smokies--but stay away from that area in the hot summer (no only due to the heat but also due to the crowdedness)....

Great pictures.....Can't wait 'til Fall---so that we can go and see the colors!!!!!

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy
