This blog post will be mostly photographs. The wild flowers in The Great Smoky Mountains National Park are a riot of diversity, color, fragrance and size. There are many bears with cubs, making their debut. Deer, Elk, Turkey, Rabbits, Squirrel, Ground Hogs and so much more. If I did not add a name to the picture of the flower, it is because I am clueless as to what they are called. I have never seen many of these before. I have been told that I can buy a book at the ranger station to help me identify them and (naturally) I will. I am so thankful our National Parks are preserving these. I did not take all these pictures, as it takes time and equipment I do not have, but I will give credit to those wonderful photographers, who trek into these woods. Enjoy!
