IMG_63891000WMother Mature made a surprise visit to the Smoky Mountains just after Halloween, covering the highest peaks of the Great Smoky Mountains with as much as 22 inches of snow on Mt. Leconte. Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Wears Valley and surrounding areas saw significant amounts of snow, blanketing trees and grassy areas with anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of snow. The snowfall, coupled with the remaining tree color was absolutely breathtaking!
