Great Smoky Mountains National Park
GSMNP is "that place" for me where I can escape the everyday stress that life brings. It has served as a retreat for me since 1997 when I moved back to Ohio from Washington State.

I hope the images in this gallery portray my love and appreciation for one of the most beautiful places on Earth.Read More
