I entered Cades Cove Loop when the gates opened Monday morning. After fighting traffic there for a few hours, I headed for the road that leads to Tremont Institute and beyond. In the mist and rain, I found what I was looking for, fall color. I made the following photographs along the Middle Prong of the Little River. It has always been one of my favorite areas in the Smokies and it didn’t disappoint.
Green being my favorite color, I love this one.
