Trolling in the Smokys

November 17, 2017  •  1 Comment

A friend of mine told me about a neat little very old stone bridge located in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  It's called the Troll Bridge.  I could not find anything about its history but its in the Elkmount Campground on the Little River Trail.  As you can see, it is a pretty cool looking little bridge.

My friend and I were in the Park to photograph the beautiful cascades in the Tremont area with nearly peak autumn colors.  Since it was still too bright there we decided to try finding the bridge first.  The Elkmount Campground is located between Gatlinburg and Townsend.  Just before you reach the campground, turn to the left and go all the way to the end to a parking lot.  At the far end of the lot is the trailhead for the Little River Trail.  There is a faint trail to the right about 100 feet from the trailhead.  You will not be able to see the bridge from the trail as its in the woods a bit. Walk the path a short distance and you should see the bridge.  Its not big so its not easily spotted.

When we were there the trees were past peak so getting a good composition was a bit tough.  Lighting also didn't help the cause either.  If we had been there a bit earlier in the season and early in the AM, it could have been really nice.  But I got the best I could here and overall its not too bad.

I understand in the spring there are a lot of wild flowers around, which could make for a nice photograph.

Anyway, check it out the next time you are in the Smokys. Tremont - November 2017Tremont - November 2017

I in like manner made some daze window light shots of Lynsey and Tennielle, the last stepping in for some exhibiting commitments excessively later in the day. All the dresses you see were organized and made by Lynsey Beardsmore and all make up by Tenneille Chapman.
