The Great Smoky Mountains are a mountain range arising  along the Tennessee - North Carolina border in the southeastern USA.It is a subrange of the Appalachian and forms a part of the Blue Ridge mountain chain.The name smoky is largely due to the fog which hangs above the range and looks like smoke Plumes.
We visited THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK last Memorial day weekend(May 2010).
Our starting point was Baltimore , Maryland(our home base).Driving a total distance of approximately 500 miles through the states of Virginia , Tennessee , North Carolina  and Georgia we reached the mountain park.
Though the drive was a little tiring...but the final destination , the beautiful vistas, the waterfall , the mountain ranges and immense greenery around us was out of the world!!
Come let's see a few pictures I took amongst many.
