Today’s Photo: Laurel Falls
This is probably one of the last photos taken of Laurel Falls inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park prior to the government “shutdown”. Fortunately, I made it through some of the park the weekend before and this was one of the stops. I was pleasantly surprised when I got to the end of the mile plus trail. This has to be one of the easiest trails I have walked. The entire thing was paved and the trail actually intersects the waterfall at about it’s mid point. Of course, I could not be satisfied with the normal shot from where the trail made it to the waterfall, so I climbed to the bottom so I could see all of it.
