The Smoky Mountains
The rain stopped just after sunset this evening, but the clouds and fog rolled in. If you ever wondered why the early pioneers called these mountains “The Smokies”, all you need to do is look at these two photos, and you’ll have your answer. This is the backside of the mountains that face my house, and are visible from my deck. Old farmhouses are scattered around this valley because there is flat land for crops.
