    beautiful thanks Matt :)

  2. Oh WOW! Look at this! This has got to be the best part of your trip! Walking through this on foot and being able to take it ALL in. Now I wish I was you. This is fabulous.

    Judging from the trees on the hill on the right, it looks like the lake & valley offered some natural block for a forest fire.

  4. Jeff says:

    one word…Stunning.

  5. Angelica says:

    So beautiful…it must have made you smile to pass this by.

  6. Candice in Alabama says:

    Sure is some pretty water! Is that the “aqua/bluegreen” water someone mentioned earlier?

  7. Karen Too says:

    I sure hope you took advantage of all of this inviting water, and went for a dip (or at least took off your shoes, and put your feet in the water).

  8. charlie says:

    ok, ok. stemming off of my last comment about ‘back roads’…..otherwise matt (and vicarously, us) would never have gotten to see all of this stunning scenery…..

  9. Dave in TN says:

    Why are the trees on the right side of the pic, bare? Any thoughts.

  10. Tna says:

    Wasn’t it mentioned earlier that some bug was killing pines? I know the Smoky Mts. have the wooly adelgid that is killing the hemlocks.

  11. Montana Matt says:

    The Trees on the right were burned in the Jocko Complex about three years ago, which burned 40K+ acres of land. Pine beetle killed trees would still have brown needles on the trees and these tree’s have no needs because they have been burned off.

    That’s not so common anymore
    Nature without any disturbance by man
    Its beautiful
