Autumn in the Smoky Mountains is Special

Fall color is coming!

 

Many people have homes in Gatlinburg and other areas throughout the Tennessee Smokies.  Most folks will agree that Autumn here in the Smokies, is uniquely special.  For one thing, the biodiversity of the trees and plant life is greater in this area, than most places on our planet.  This diversity expresses the fall leaf color in an incredible display.  To add to this cornucopia of color, we have it displayed in a dramatic three dimensional presentation of mountain topography.  The display is further enhanced by the element of elevation.  The highest peaks above 6,000 feet are more in sync with the northern U.S.  Trees up high will begin their leaf color change and eventual drop, way before the low valleys and hollows.  The autumn process is opposite the leafing out of Spring.  Springtime sees the green of leaves move up the mountains and fall starts out high and moves down.  This magical display provided by the forces of Mother Nature is further enhanced by our own internal clocks.  The circadian rhythms go off inside just about everyone.  That little inner voice urges us ever more dramatically. “The hibernation time of winter is approaching! Get out and enjoy the warmth and beauty before it is gone!” Even Mother Nature lends a hand.  Our blistering heat from summer mellows, and the evening temperatures drop to jacket comfort.  Even the intensely-tropical humidity levels back off, as cooler, drier air moves in.  For many of us, outside temperatures are just about perfect.
