The Great Smoky Mountains - Franklin, North Carolina

The Appalachian Mountains, often called the Appalachians or The Great Smoky Mountains here in Franklin, NC, are a system of mountains in eastern North America and run through Macon County in Western North Carolina. The Appalachians first formed roughly 480 million years ago during the Ordovician Period. The Appalachian chain is a barrier to east-west travel as it forms a series of alternating ridgelines and valleys oriented in opposition to any road running east-west.
