SMOKEY MOUNTAINS

We've been enjoying some much needed rain today.  The moisture brought us the conditions that helped to name this area.....Smokey Mountains.  What can often appear as smoke from a fire that creeps up and out of the forested mountains, is merely low clouds.



This photo was taken off our back deck in a north eastern direction.  The mountain is approximately 4,500-5,000 feet elevation.



Here's another view, perhaps a bit more dramatic.



Two of the three mountains to our south are obscured by the misty clouds.  More rain is expected tonight, but by tomorrow the temperatures will be nearly 70 degrees.  'The husband' is already planning a ride on his motorcycle.....while I'm going to work in my studio.  Life is good here in our mountain valley!
