Hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains

Hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains

While hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains this past April we had few opportunities to gather all in our group for a single photograph. However, on this wet, cool morning as we were crossing a small footbridge over a small stream we encountered a couple and the gentleman of the couple I noticed had a Nikon D80 slung over his shoulder. Since that’s the very camera I own I surmised the gentleman knew how to use the camera. I offered to take a few photos of the couple in exchange for a few shots of our group with my camera.

I think he was new to his camera as neither shot he took was what I’d call “tack sharp” but we did manage to get this shot of our entire vacation group all geared up for a day’s worth of hiking. This day would be one of the lighter days of hiking we had during a week that saw us cover about forty-four miles of hiking through the wonder Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
