Light Rays from Waterrock Knob
A month or so ago my brother Parker and I camped at Balsam Mountain Campground in the Smokies. It's the highest elevation front country campsite in the park and the weather can be quite unpredictable and um. . . well, brutal. So to do a day hike we had to flee the area and find more tolerable weather. We ended up hiking some of the Mountains to Sea Trail at Waterrock Knob and got to catch quite a show as the sun went down. It was pretty cloudy, but this meant the light rays were out in full effect. Fun fact, the actual name of these rays: Crepuscular rays.
Below are my favorite three images I took during the experience. If you've never been up there for a sunset, you need to plan a trip. It can be quite magical.
