Great Smoky Mountains - Part 5
After spending a few days camped near Gatlinburg, we moved to a much more remote national park campground in the Little Cataloochee Valley, in the south-eastern part of the park.
Views of the Great Smoky Mountains.

The Catalochee and Little Cataloochee Valleys are known for their elk herds.
Many families had settled in the Cataloochee valleys before the national park was formed.
