Color me green :)

Smokies 1

When I am gone for this long, you know it's not the lack of interest that's holding me away....... and I am not gonna start whining here. Instead, I'd love to share some images from our weekend at Smokies....If I have to sum up the whole experience at the national park in one word, it has to be, with no second thoughts, "green" :)

Smokies 2
I loved, loved, loved that "smoky" haze that surrounded the mountains almost all the time we were there and sunlight filtering through leaves added its own effect :)

I used to visit SMNP every summer as a child, so I know of what you speak. It's green and gorgeous.

Beautiful! So emerald in that last photo.

Driving on Vancouver Island and parts of BC is a lot like this, too, though of course, the vegetation is different. Just that wonderful moodiness and ethereal quality.

Hi Moi, welcome back. I've missed you and your delightful posts.
Never made it to the Smokies. Wish I could see them after your wonderful green pictures. It looks like an ideal vacation spot.

Hi Moi :)

I'm making the rounds to say hi and tell my blogger friends I'm back and alive and well and so very appreciative of all your kind words, well wishes and prayers while I was gone.

I'll be back later to check out your blog and see what you've been up to while I was gone.

Love the Tennessee shots. My daughter just moved to TN and says it looks a lot like Oregon.
