I hear that the fireflies are starting to do their thing. If you have heard about the synchronized fireflies and wonder what the fuss is about, check out this link, http://www.nps.gov/grsm/naturescience/fireflies.htm.
They are an amazing display of what nature has to offer here in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. If you are wondering if we witness the fireflies on the mountain? The answer is, no. You have to see them in the lower elevations. Elkmont is usually the best place to watch this amazing show.
