Smoky Mountains-Mount LeConte via Rainbow Falls Trail

We did our annual fall hike up  Mount LeConte in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park .  We may only make one hike up next year as we didn’t get a reservation at the lodge  for the fall in the lottery. For those who may not know, the picture below shows Mt. LeConte from a cabin we rented just above Gatlinburg.
