Maybe you’ve been living in a cave lately or possibly had your power knocked out by the storm of the century, but if you haven’t heard, there’s snow in the Smokies. This is primarily in the highest elevations with nothing but cool and damp weather in Townsend and other communities surrounding the park.
Here are a few photos from Newfound Gap Road on Monday. Last we heard there was close to three feet of snow on the main ridge line with some massive drifts. Needless to say, Newfound Gap Road across the Smokies is closed.
It was an incredible autumn in the Smokies and we got some really nice photos we’ve shared with you along the way. Today we found this beautiful video from the Smoky Mountains Association we wanted to share. It has stunning video of fall color, streams, bear, and bugling elk. If you missed fall in the Smokies this year you should invest three minutes watching this video to get up to speed.
