Down Memory Lane: Middle Prong

Scenes from the Middle Prong of Little River, Great Smoky Mountains National Park. January 25, 2008.

The most-visited of our national parks is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina.  The crowds can be overwhelming at times.

But it is possible to get away from the crowds even in the Smokies.  One of those lesser-visited places is the Middle Prong of Little River above Tremont.  An old logging road follows the stream for a couple  miles, offering some wonderful views of the cascades and rapids.

Betsy and I first explored Middle Prong in January, 2008.  We enjoyed it so much that we’ve been back several times since.

I’m grateful that a health scare involving my mother was a false alarm and that she is feeling much better.

    I would love to be in the Smokies when it snows….just one time. Do you and Betsy go there during this time of year, and if so, is it still busy? I wouldn’t think it would be.
