    Synapse in the Smokies

    Last weekend I was able to get away for a few days to the Tennessee Smokies. I saw several black bears up close and personal, and even stood in the snow (OK, snow flurries) on Clingman's Dome on Saturday! But the weather during the rest of my stay was nothing but gorgeous early autumn warmth and sunshine. It was a day like that that I took this photo of my trusty Indigo Synapse on Middle Prong Creek in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The Synapse was carrying all my photo gear—and I do mean all of it. There was a DSLR, several lenses, lots of pouches with batteries, filters, and accessories; and my little point-and-shoot. The more I carry it, the more I love my Synapse.

          Nice photo. I keep debating whether my next bag is going to be a synapse or whether I'll hold out for the hinted-at "pilot".

          That trail is a real nice one. Easy enough for most people, pretty creek along the whole thing and not too big of a crowd like some of the big name waterfall trails. For those that haven't had the pleasure, the Smokies I'm the fall are a beautiful sight to behold. I don't know if they beat Maine or Vermont but the colors last for weeks rather than days and the variety is stunning as you drive through different parts of the park and different elevations. I get to go for my 2nd anniversary later this month. :)

            Happy anniversary! You're so lucky you got to wed in October. Maybe the Synapse would make a good present to mark the occasion.

                Thanks! We started going up there in October the year before we were married and honeymooned in the smokies and at a few stops along the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC. Got to be one of the most stunning drives in the world in the fall.
