Spruce Flats Falls

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Spring's rains have swelled Spruce Flat waterfalls and the final portions of the trail have been muddy and treacherous. But in the spray of the waterfall, and the fading light of this rainy spring day, there is a sense of peace and tranquility, and a desire to stay just a little bit longer.
