Drenched by gold and crimson dropsFrom high upon the mountain tops,Sweet feathered, wispy, blazing strainsDeluge the hills with Autumn’s rains!         (R Weisser 2013) It’s the middle of October, and the evidence of Autumn is working its way South. I love the leaf season for so many reasons. I love the fleeting nature of it. I love the way it varies from year to year and place to place. There are so many variables that affect the changing of leaf color that’s it hard to predict exactly where and when the “best” leaves will be. I am often asked: “when is the best time to see the leaves?” The fact is, there is no clearly defined answer. You have to go out and find them. That’s part of the fun. It’s both a race and a treasure hunt all rolled into one!   And that’s why I love it! Photos: S...

There is nothing quite like Spring-time in the Great Smoky Mountains. As the days lengthen and the ground warms, like reawakens on the steep slopes and on the forest floor. The show starts in March and continues into July. Depending on the species and elevation, one can discover various blooming plants and shrubs throughout the park. Some of the flowers are large and ostentatious, while others are miniscule and reticent. Many varieties bloom profusely but others might only offer a glimpse to a very observant eye. Half of the fun is making your own discoveries while exploring the different ecosystems of the park. Keep in mind that this is also the time of year when reptiles and bears awake from their Winter naps so always stay alert and exercise caution, especially in the more remote are...

I found this beautiful stone wall in the National Park last week-- how many hours did this take someone to create?  It's still here 100 years later:)

The ancient craggy guardianBy age without comparison,‘Twas old and aged as Alps were bornAnd towered when the Rockies formed!          (R Weisser 2012) Did you know that the Appalachian Mountains are considered to be among the oldest peaks on the planet? Thrust ever upwards by the force of the great Continental Collision, the mountains rose into the tallest and most imposing chain ever formed. Millions of years of weather and gravity have eroded the mountains into their present incarnation. And while they are far from being the highest, the Southern Appalachians are certainly among the most beautiful and eco-diverse mountains to be seen anywhere. Even more so in Autumn, when they explode with color! The mountains are calling. I must answer. Photos courtesy of Richard Weisser and SmokyPh...

As dark voids ‘midst the twigs and leavesDevouring mast of shrubs and trees,The black bears soon in den will lie,And fat they’ll sleep ‘till Spring draws nigh!                (R Weisser 2012) The black bears of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are very active in Autumn as they make their final preparations before denning for the winter. Once they are fattened up, black bears can sleep for up to a hundred days without food or water. They do not become dehydrated. During their facultative hibernation, bears can be aroused by noises or scents. They may leave the den for short periods of time and then return. With an estimated bear population of about 1500, or roughly 2 per square mile, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the best places in North America to enjoy the ex...

I love the progression of Spring in the Smokies.  it starts with the daffodils, moves to the redbuds.. now it is the Dogwood's turn-- just little bits of lace in the woods..really pretty to see every morning on the way to work.  This big tree is just outside my window.  Can you see why I never get any work done!

  One of the joys of living in the Great Smoky Mountains is the instant accessibility to places like this!  Last weekend my family took our dogs for a walk. (yes, all of them..Tommy the 2 year Aussie who is very mature, Dennis  the 1 year old Pound Puppy who is afraid of everything but still manages to get into unbelievable trouble, and Elsie the 4 month old Yellow Lab who has absolutely NO CLUE about life in general and is already HUGE). We took them on the Gatlinburg Trail, which is one of the few places in the Park that dogs are welcomed.  It runs from behind the Park Headquarters at Sugarlands in the Park down into downtown Gatlinburg near where the Happy Hiker used to be. **Oh my gosh I just realized I have become "one of them"!  Directions for Realtors in this area are full of th...

My family and I are headed to Gatlinburg this weekend for an event called Winterfest which has dynamic spiritual teachers who are speaking primarily to youths. It begins Friday night and goes through Sunday. Some of the speakers are Josh Ross and Rich Little but our favorite who will be speaking is Jeff Walling. Here is a link to the schedule. The main reason I enjoy going is because of the praise and worship. You can hold up your hands and praise the Lord and everyone around you will be doing the same thing. This is really a place for seekers to experience a closer walk with God. Most of us are members of the Church of Christ but other churches will be there as well. If you are interested in going please come and join us. If any Activerainers want to say hello to me while I am there pl...

Original Log Cabins in the Smokies: The original Scandanavian-inspired Handcrafted style of log cabin was adopted by the early settlers in Cades Cove and other parts of the area. These homes were built with logs square-cut with hand tools, many of them from chestnut trees. These log cabins required a filling in between the logs, called "chinking" which was mud or mortar. Homes you see now in the Cove may have this mortar missing. While contemporary builders correctly refer to new construction as a "log home" these original buildings were aptly named "log cabins", with usually just one or two rooms and a loft.Handhewn log cabin in Cades Cove

I love this time of the year in the Smokies-- while some people look at fall as the end of something, lots of us here see it as a beginning.  This is the time when our Mountains sparkle and shine with brilliant color and the towns are full of visitors, sharing the beauty with us.  There's just an energy that permeates the area that is palpable.  After a long (hot) and busy summer, it's renewing to pull off the road and just enjoy the views.  I was showing property to a client last week who was looking for Gatlinburg real estate  and we were driviing through the Park areas around Gatlinburg.  I just said to her "I can't believe I'm working!" and I meant it... but someone has to do it!

I stopped on the way into the office at the corner of Campbell Lead and the Gatlinburg ByPass to take these photos-- overlooking the town of Gatlinburg. I can tell we are moving towards fall-- it's 62 degrees and bright blue skies.  There were three convertibles in the parking lot-- the perfect ride for looking at Gatlinburg Real estate!

One of the joys of living here after so many monochromatic years in Florida is the change of seasons.  I always think I will have a huge garden full of zinnias and peonies just like my grandmother.  But it seems like every spring just as I am getting ready to plant, the real estate business picks up and I am too busy to think about my flowers. The last couple of years I have had to settle for some "spot gardens" -- just little places that I can add some color to that don't take too much attention.  I was out last night watering my one and only spot garden of this season-- except my gigantic 8 ft. tomato plants of course (I never did figure out where they came from!).  When I looked at my tiny garden, I realized it's a lot like selling homes in Gatlinburg these days. The fundamentals are...
