With over 11 million people enjoying the park’s rolling splendor each year, Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina and Tennessee is always near the top of the list for yearly visitation. With epic views from Clingmans Dome and the sublime beauty of Cades Cove, it’s easy to see why so many people are drawn to this special place. Keep your eyes open for waterfalls, fireflies, black bears and amazing summer sunsets. Photo courtesy of Bob Carr.

Rising 8,751 feet, high above the dry plains of West Texas, Guadalupe Peak is the highest point in the state. From the top of Texas, visitors can see the wide expanse of Guadalupe Mountains National Park and stand on an ancient reef, born under an inland sea over 250 million years ago. The geology, history and views in this park are all spectacular. Photo by E. Jackson, National Park Service.
