Hike To Mt. LeConte Via Rainbow Falls After 3 Ft. Of Snow From Sandy Pt.4

These are pictures that I took on a hike from Rainbow Falls via Mt. LeConte after Hurricane Sandy had dumped over 3 feet of snow on Mt. LeConte and The Great Smoky Mountains above 5,ooo feet . Such beauty in the snow covered mountains makes everything so pure , so beautiful and so mysterious ! I hope you enjoy all the pictures . Happy Hiking !

Amazing the amount of snow on all the trees

Even in the aftermath of the storm beauty can appear

“For the listener, who listens in the snow, / And, nothing himself, beholds /
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.”
― Wallace Stevens

Is this the steps to LeConte or the snow slide ?

Hurricane Sandy dumped over 3 feet of snow on the mountains

Winter wonderland set down on the mountain in the fall

So peaceful and so quite when I got there

Snow drifts to the roofs on some of cabins
