Deep Creek Trail at Tom's Branch Falls
Deep Creek Trail at Tom's Branch Falls

Painted along the Deep Creek Trail outside of Bryson City in Smokey Mountains National Park. This is the trail not far beyond Tom's Branch Falls, a beautiful waterfall a short distance down the trail.

This is an area I visit regularly, mostly because it is one of the least crowded parts of the park. Also because I remember it fondly from the canoe club's whitewater week that was based there when I was in high school and college.

I have painted this section of the trail a couple more times since. The trees in this version are pretty simplistic as is the hillside to the left, but I like the figure in the distance.
