If you have not been to the Great Smoky Mountains this is just a taste of what you are missing! There is no place on earth more personally restorative than this. Once I breath in this air, laden with the moisture of this temperate Rain forest, the sense of wonder overwhelms me.
Thank you Val for providing me regular doses of the beauty and wonder of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
My soul sister Val (ValinReallife.com) is a fellow Certified Southern Appalachian Naturalist from the great folks at the Great Smoky Mountain Institute at Tremont! Of the many things I am indebted to this most special of places for my kindred who see the intrinsic value of nature and the vital services freely provided. Once this was pure, but now we have to attempt to renew, replenish, and restore this place from the anthropocentric damages.
I am so blessed to be able to share nature through the wonder of science. My mission is to spawn a sense of caring for the environment. In the youth, I maintain hope they will be better caretakers, using their brilliant young minds to repair our mistakes.
