Today’s Photo: Don’t Miss the Forest Because the Trees

I was hiking along the trail, if it can be called that, to Laurel Falls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park several weeks ago.  I was so focused on the beautiful falls and vast vistas, that I almost missed this.  It was getting close to sunset on the way back to the car and the light coming through the trees further up the mountain looked like a gentle fog rolling in.  I know it was just my imagination, but it seemed like the mountain wanted to transport us to a different place.  It made for a good photo opportunity though.
