17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Hiking the Appalachian Trail

My husband and I were section hiking the Appalachian Trail and had been hiking between the Tennessee and North Carolina border straight up a mountainside. We finally got through the trees and into a clearing where we reached a crest overlooking this beautiful scene in between mountain tops.
