Driving through Cataloochee Ranch yesterday on the way home, the clear blue skies and beginning fall colors called out for the camera.
Our nighttime lows have been flirting with freezing and the days are shortening. Fall is such a lovely time in the mountains, perfect for a person like me who just thrives on being outdoors.
Below is one of my favorite hiking destinations from the house, Hemphill Bald. The tree line along the ridge represents the boundary between Cataloochee Ranch and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can hike to that ridge from either side and Cataloochee Ranch offers horse rides from their stables to the ridge.
