Spring in the Great Smoky Mountains – April 15 – 19, 2018
Sunday afternoon through Thursday morning
Explore the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains National Park. GMS NP has so much to offer, from landscapes to waterfalls, it’s simply amazing!
Cost: $1,195/participant – Early Bird pricing available until Nov 30, 2017 – $995/participant
Spring blooms, flowing rivers, reflections, bears, deer, and elk – Oh my! Depending on the weather, we may even get treated to the signature fog that moves through the mountain range or ice on Clingman’s Dome.
There is no better place than the Great Smoky Mountains to experience the change of the seasons from winter to spring. Trees changing from barren branches to lush greens, reflecting in the flowing rivers. Spring blooms, white and pink dogwoods, along peaceful dirt roads. In this tour we will experience all of this and more! Bring some waders with you to capture the flowing rivers from the middle of the river. Capture the historical cabins and mills in the area in the soft morning light and early morning fog. If conditions provide, we may even do some light painting one of the evening. This photo tour will have something for everyone!
