Going there next month on vacation. What are your fav spots? What focal lengths gave you the best coverage?

I shoot mostly wide angle there, with my 10-22 mm or possibly the 24-105 mm. Lots of good spots, like Clingman's Dome, Cades Cove, Roaring Fork Road, Greenbrier, Cataloochee, Cherokee, etc. Check their web site for hikes, especially to waterfalls. They have some great ones. My Tennessee and NC Galleries have some shots that may give you ideas.

Laurel Falls is neat. Get there early to get a parking spot. I went last October and there was no one at 7am, but that's because the sun hadn't risen yet. I was the only one at the falls and had about 20 minutes to myself to shoot it. I'm sure the summer crowd will be a lot more. Check out my pbase for pictures of it.

The path is set up so you can see the falls coming down and lean over to see the water going downstream. It was the highlight of my trip.
