On my way back home from South Carolina I detoured to Chimney Rock, North Carolina and into Tennessee to view the Appalachian Mountains. The following photos are from the Tennessee portion of that trip.
The Appalachian Mountains and Cherokee National Forest in Tennesee northeast of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
I stopped at this overlook to see the mountains from a different point of view. The 150 foot ascent seemed to be straight up and my thighs were burning by the time I reached the top.
