Newfound Gap at Sunrise - Skywatch Friday November 14

All four of these photographs were taken at Newfound Gap in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in southeast USA. They were taken between 6:37AM and 6:50AM on October 22, 2008.
You can see where the park got the nicknames of the Smokies and the Blue Ridges.
Check out Sky Watch Friday to see wonderful sky photos from all over the world.

I love Newfound Gap... Last year, we traveled from the NC side to Gatlinburg to see the Christmas lights. There was snow at Newfound Gap--so we HAD to stop and check it out!
Hugs,
Betsy
