Synchronous Fireflies

Talk about enchantment.

A firefly show that rivals no other occurs every year in the Great Smoky Mountains.

This was our spot pre-show. We were near Gatlinburg, Tenn, in an area known as Elkmont, on the first night of the 2016 synchronous firefly viewing.

Taking pictures with a flash in the dark negatively effects the display, so this is the only image we got from the evening.

However, this CBS Sunday morning piece from several years ago is all you need to see. It's the reason we were there. I was just waiting for our kids to be old enough to stay up late to enjoy the magic of it all.
