I just found out this week that something really spectacular happens in the Smoky Mountains for only a couple of weeks each June ~ synchronus firefly flashing! There are over a dozen species of fireflies in the Smokies, and this particular species synchronize their flash patterns. The reason has not yet been discovered, but I found someone talking about it who sounds kinda smart. Here are some first-hand reports from Mr. Smarty and other folks who have witnessed the phenomenon (he’s a smarty in a really good way!).
THIS WEEK there are shuttle buses from the Sugarlands visitor center to viewing areas each night. Read more about the shuttles and how to participate here. This is something I definitely plan to view for myself this week!
It’s almost Friday!
