Spring in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

The 800 square mile park, which straddles the border between North Carolina and Tennessee, makes for a wide variety of flora in these misty mountains, part of the southern Appalachians. More than 1,500 flowering plant species have been identified here, including flame azaleas, columbines, dwarf irises, larkspurs and mayapples. Be sure to see the treeless, high-elevation areas that are home to thickets of mountain laurel, rhododendrons and sand myrtle. Celebrate one of the most beautiful places to experience the season's stunning colors.
