Scenic Sunday 106: Newfound Gap

Betsy at Newfound Gap, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee. May 19, 2001.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

The main road across the Smokies between Gatlinburg, Tennessee and Cherokee, Noth Carolina, runs through Newfound Gap.  You can see the road in the background of the picture above.  The road contains many overlooks which offer spectacular views of the mountains and valleys.

I took this picture in May of 2001, before Betsy and I were married.  I realize I’m prejudiced, but I think the most spectacular sight in this scene is sitting on the rock in the foreground.

    I have to agree George; Betsy looks absolutely radiant in this photo! What beautiful scenery but when I see the squiggly road all I can think is “car sick!” It’s always fun to see the many places you two have traveled. I remember visiting Cherokee when I was a child.
