This is a Chestnut-sided Warbler and pretty sure a male juvenile. It’s definitely a male because of its white tips on top of yellow tip wing bars. In addition breeding males have a yellow crown, black mask, white cheeks and chestnut sides. It’s crown doesn’t appear to be completely yellow and these other features are not in full colored plumage yet which is why I think it’s a juvenile. Please correct me if I’m wrong. Forages for insects. Winters in Central America. Another beautiful warbler. Wishing you a very blessed day! #newfoundgap #gsmnp #friendsofthesmokies #smokymountainphotography #smokiesfrieinds #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #alive_photo @alive_photo #instagramtennessee #865life @865life #birds #birdsofinstagtam #pocket_birds #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #birdextreme #udog_feathers #cornellabofornithology @cornellabofornithology @feather_perfection #your_best_birds #birds_adored #bb_ig_ig #best_birds_of_ig #bird_brilliance #bestbirdshots #allmightybirds #anythingfeathered #audobonsociety
Парк Грейт Смоки Маунтинс богат на водопады. И мы решили обязательно увидеть самые доступные из них, куда не надо идти по несколько часов в одну сторону. . Серия водопадов в городской черте — это водопады на ручье Дип Крик (Deep Creek), то есть Глубоком ручье. Они расположены рядом с городом Брайсон Сити, куда из Чероки ведет дорога 19. Надо проехать через центр города и повернуть в сторону депо, а затем к парку. . По пути мы заметили много автомобильных камер (их здесь называют tube), которые можно взять напрокат за 5 долларов на весь день (с 8 утра до 8 вечера), чтобы поплавать на них по реке. Сразу вспомнился Лаос, где иностранцы также катаются на надувных камерах по Меконгу. . Сразу у въезда в парк стоит Deep Creek Lodge. Мы проехали мимо одноименного кемпинга и столиков для пикника (пообедали там после прогулки по водопадам) и оставили машину на парковке. . От довольно большой парковки для автомобилей Deep Creek Trailhead начинается хайк к трем водопадам. Удобнее всего осматривать их в следующей последовательности: . ☘️ Tom Branch Falls . ☘️ Indian Creek Falls . ☘️ Juney Whank Falls . Водопады Tom Branch и Indian Creek находятся на одной тропе длиной 3 км (туда и обратно) с набором высоты — 45 метров. Первым попадается Том Брэнч Фоллс, а затем тропа уходит немного вверх вдоль реки и приводит к Индиан Фоллс. . Что касается водопада Juney Whank Falls, то его можно посетить на обратном пути, взобравшись в гору сразу после повторного посещения водопада Том Брэнч или же пойти на этот водопад первым сразу от парковки и спуститься с горы прямо перед Том Брэнч. Это тропа — небольшой круговой маршрут длиной в 800 метров, набор высоты — 60 метров. . Мы приехали утром и пока гуляли от одного водопада до другого, туристов практически не встречали. Попадались лишь спортивные местные жители, совершавшие утренние пробежки по тропе вдоль ручья. Однако, когда мы уже налюбовались водопадом, пришли еще туристы и сфотографировали нас, а у Джуни Уэнк мы уже застали целое семейство из Японии. . Листайте карусель, чтобы увидеть все водопады. Они все красивые по своему. Какой нравится больше всех?
#Potd Bear Hunts Food on Spence Field One of the 400-600 Eastern Black Bears in the Great Smokies, this adult is looking for a meal of berries and other summer food on Spence Field, a cleared grassland at 4,958 feet elevation in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Regulations prohibit the feeding of bears to help prevent injury to visitors and protect the bears’ health. #gsmnp #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokymountains #bear #animals #cadescove #postcardsoftheday #wildlife #godscreation
Unfortunately Tyde’s judge no-repped him in this 20lb rock deadlift...weak #greatsmokeymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #crossfit #crossfitkids #futurestrongman #currentstrongboy
Saw serval bears today but two decided to give us a private show - they both walked out right in front of us on small roads when we were all alone and casually walked by the Jeep and went along their way. 🐻🌄🚙 #welthervacation #beercation #wellmostly #vacationtime #smokymountains #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greenbriar #richmountainroad #cadescove #jeep #jeepin #jeeplife #jeepwrangler #blackbear #bear
Atop Mount Cammerer at 4928ft sits this fire tower built in the 1930s.

// Epic pitstop at REI. Gathered our own firewood. Magically made tofu into scrambled eggs. Hiked 10+ miles. Skipped some rocks. Crossed a creek in search of a trail. Walked in soaked shoes. Walked barefoot. Had an alarmingly close encounter with a black bear. Underestimated the return hike. Cried. Hitched a ride back to camp with two very kind strangers from Alabama. Talked about mysterious microwave meals + what color our eyes are. Laughed. Washed off in the creek. Napped in the hammock. Devoured some veggie dogs. Tent zipped + lights out before 9:00. . . #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #northcarolina #westernnc #abramscreek #getoutdoors #hiking #camping #makeportraits #weekendvibes #campvibes

Tennessee Day 3: We took on a couple of areas of Great Smoky Mountain National Park today. First, we drove the Cades Cove loop, then went north to Clingmans Dome and walked to the observation tower there (tough sledding up that hill). Seeing 2 different black bear cubs in 2 different areas of the park really made the day pretty special. We didn’t even see bears at Yellowstone or Grand Tetons. We made our way back to the motel on wheels and explored the river running next to the campground and then the kids swam. Overall a great day! #apexnano #coachmen #explore #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #cadescove #camping #roadtrip #clingmansdome #blackbear #tennessee
With it's beautiful fall colors, abundant wildlife, and cascading waterfalls, its no wonder Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the entire country.

I spent last week in the Great Smoky Mountains with my family. We had a great time outdoors while cooking, napping, and cooling off in the creek that ran 20ft from our campsite. (not that it was hot) . Tomorrow I'll share some pictures of Cades Cove and some bears! . . . #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #elkmont #therewerenoshowers #andnoac #buttherewasaverycoldcreek #itrainedalot #wesawabearorfive #noonewaseatenbyabear
I have Fall fever! This was taken on the Gatlinburg By-Pass in 2015. That was a very good year for colors. It was an overcast, drizzly day which made the colors pop. This scene caught my eye because it has several shades of colors in it.
Some little animal friends at the @greystonelodge in #gatlinburgtennessee During our stay we also saw four otters playing in the river and other guests saw a bear right where our balcony is! 🐻 The river was significantly higher than a few nights earlier due to all the rain! We absolutely LOVED our stay in a River View balcony room at the Greystone Lodge! #blueridgemountains #appalachianmountains #tennessee #gatlinburg #GSMNP #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokeymountainsnp #adventureawaits #adventure #outdoors #nature #naturefocusedvacations #getoutside #pigeonriver #littlepigeonriver
My good buddy's and I headed down to the State Admin building. The Governor has offices here where we met with his environmental policy advisor. We want to affect change in NC policies regarding the Coyote and how this directly impacts the Red Wolf. I won't take this lying down if you won't either. #redwolf #letthemgofree #nantahala #pisgahnationalforest #nantahalanationalforest #chattahoochienationalforest #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #cherokeenationalforest #georgewashingtonnationalforest #wolves #predators #extinction #nczoo #asheville #nature #wildlife #wnc #coyote #wolf #mountains #nc #alligatorrivernwr

Throwback from May - rain over the The Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee. Grey and overcast here today, cool weather has not been more welcome. . . . #thesmokies #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #clingmansdome #americasnationalparks #mountains #naturephotography #omdem5 #olympus #tennessee #appalachia
This is an image of a Black Bear from GSMNP. This image was made earlier this year, in the Spring. I thought the small wildflowers surrounding the bear made a great element to the image. The grass was already pretty tall and thick. In fact, you can even see a pretty healthy tick on his/her right ear. This was pretty early in the morning, so the light was still pretty low. To compensate for that, I had to open my aperture wide open to allow as much light in as possible. In the case of this lens, that was F/6.3. I also had to raise my ISP a touch to get the shutter speed I really wanted to work with. I raised my ISO to 2000, which for the Nikon D500 is nothing at all. I wanted to maintain a shutter speed at 1/500th or higher. I was able to do that by opening my aperture up and raising the ISO. Equipment list: Nikon D500, Tamron Lenses USA SP 150-600mm F5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 A022 and Sirui USA SIRUI Imaging P-324S Monopod with L-20S Monopod Head. EXIF Info: Aperture-priority, 1/640 sec, f/6.3, ISO 2000
HeySmokies! There is nothing like a Smoky Mountain sunrise! Have a great week everyone.
The photo here makes the horse look like it was in a full gallop but it was just in a canter. It was a panning shot at a slow shutter which shows movement in the subject instead of freezing it. I’ll admit I had some luck getting it anywhere near sharp but it’s kinda fun trying to execute it. I love horses and always have since I was a kid and my uncle had one on his farm. Seeing the CC horses as they’re rounding them up is fun as some tend to pick up some speed heading back to the stable. Some get in a full gallop and others a canter like this and some just walk. This also happens when they’re first let out to pasture and some of the horses like to catch up with the ones out front. I’ve never asked how many horses there are but at least 50 I think so they get pretty spread out. I love to see them in a full run but either way I feel fortunate if I happen along at the right time to see it take place like it did this day. Have a wonderful day and a great week! #cadescovehorses #cadescove #cadescovephotography #gsmnp #friendsofthesmokies #smokymountainphotography #smokiesfrieinds #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokynationalpark #nationalparks #nature_brilliance #naturephotogrqphy #allnatureshots #bestnatureshots #alive_photo @alive_photo #instagramtennessee #865life @865life
Каких животных можно увидеть в Грейт Смоки Маунтинс? . Грейт Смоки Маунтинс - это национальный парк с огромной территорией, на которой можно встретить диких животных. И даже одомашненных лам. Потому что именно ламы перевозят вещи в лодж Леконт, куда нет автомобильной дороги, в только горная тропа длиной 12 км. . А вот диких животноых лучше всего наблюдать ранним утром и вечером. Мы в этом убедились лично, когда встречали оленей на смотровых площадках по дороге на гору Бальзам. . Другим утром по дороге в Кейдс Коув мы увидели черных медведей — маму и ее медвежат. . Позже днем в Кейдс Коув несколько раз встречали пятнистых оленей. . Еще в Грейт Смоки Маунтинс водятся еноты, койоты, скунсы, индюки и другие животные. Мы видели всех, кроме енотов. Что меня очень расстраивает, потому что это моя мечта - увидеть енотов в естественной среде. . А вы как любите встречать животных - в диких условиях или в зоопарках?
I guess you could say that elopements run in the family for Candace. Nearly 27 years ago, Candace’s mother wore a blue dress when she eloped herself. Upon hearing the story of her parent’s elopement, Candace never pictured her wedding any other way. Her handmade, blue skirt contrasted perfectly with the new spring foliage the Smokies provided. Her elopement to Nathan at Bud Ogle Cabin is on the blog! (Link in profile) . . . .
