The Most Photographed Mountains in the South
Can you guess?
From Maroon Bells in Colorado to Mount Rainier in Washington, America sure boasts spectacular mountains. In the Southern part of the U.S., we certainly have some stunners — like the Blue Ridge Mountains, Ruffner Mountain, and Guadalupe Peak, to name a few. But among all these beauties, which captures our clicks the most?
According to Reader's Digest, the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennesse and North Carolina are among the 9 Most Photographed Mountains in the United States. "Although the Great Smoky Mountains are not one specific peak, they are a beautiful mountain range saddling Tennessee and North Carolina and need to be on your bucket list," the article explains of the majestic range, adding that some popular hiking trails include those at the Alum Cave Bluffs, Rainbow Falls, and Chimney Tops, among others.

Planning your trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park? Our vote for the best photo opp is the 30-foot Spruce Flats Falls. Located at the end of a one-mile hike behind the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont, you won't find this hidden waterfall on most park maps.
