Dogwoods in Bloom

dogwood Beautiful dogwood trees are common below 3,000 feet in the Smokies. With their showy white displays, they brighten up the forests during this time of year and remind us that spring is here but a short time. Get out in the park to see them right now, or take a look at this short video to enjoy the lovely dogwood while it’s in peak bloom.

    Is this typical for April? I was thinking of taking my son backpacking in the first week of April and was just wondering what kind of weather we’ll run into.

    Spring can be unpredictable. Showers can turn to snow flurries in minutes. Good idea to dress in layers and have rain gear with you if you are backpacking, and it will get cold at night too. It is a beautiful time with all the flowers and trees blooming. Check out the park’s page concerning weather to get a good idea of average rain/snow and temps by month > http://www.nps.gov/grsm/planyourvisit/weather.htm. Happy trails!
