Clingman’s Dome, Cades Cove, The Morton Overlook, these are just some of the iconic locations we will visit on this spring workshop to Great Smoky Mountain National Park. This park offers something for everyone: great landscapes, charming historic buildings, bear, deer, coyote, turkey, songbirds. But the real highlight of this workshop will be the spectacular wildflowers. We timed this trip to coincide with peak spring wildflower season in the Smokies. As an added bonus for 2019, our experts in the area tell us that Spring of 2019 there should be as many as 25 sets of Spring bear cubs in the park!
