One must see place if you visit Western North Carolina is Cataloochee. Cataloochee is located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is well known for the elk that often roam there. If you get there at sunrise, you are almost guaranteed to see a few.
The fog is normally thick so be careful when driving. We have seen all sorts of critters on our trips but we always come to see the elk.
It's a beautiful area. Share it with friends.
