Fall in the Great Smoky Mountains

Holy cow, guys. Somehow it's the middle of November?! Honestly this season seems to fly by faster and faster every year. I'm jumping around a bit on here while my poor hard drive is being fixed (lesson learned, kids, double back up your work!), so sharing the second half of my fall, first! I can't help but get the itch to get back on the road after a short while, and while I originally had no intention to leave the Northeast after Summer, well, there we were, on our way South to track down the foliage in a new arena. 

Prior to this trip, I had only ever been to North Carolina and Tennessee once before, never to Georgia, and never in any of these for Fall. It was a whole new experience visiting these landscapes with the shades of gold and orange clinging to the trees! This was a particularly tough Fall to capture, some places the foliage was at peak, others the leaves hadn't even started to turn. Starting near Asheville, NC, we managed to find some hidden pockets of gold as we made our way along the Blue Ridge Parkway, meandering across the state borders of nearby Georgia and Tennessee. We enjoyed a night at the most incredible little campsite I've ever been to, nestled deep in the Smokies, followed by a trip to Hot Springs, NC (where yes, we enjoyed the hot springs). After a few stops to state parks in Georgia, we made it to our final destination of Atlanta. While V is often there for work, it was my first time exploring the city! We had an awesome time, reconnecting with friends and enjoying all the music and nightlife. I want to thank Woolrich for supplying us with some great Fall gear to cozy up into - think the softest flannels EVER. Will be linking my favorites below!
