Tennessee Journey

Over the past couple of weeks I've been in Tennessee working at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and attending a class on High Performance Computing for Phylogenetics at the University of Tennessee.  My family came along, and since we were staying in Knoxville, which is only an hour from the Great Smoky Mountains, we spent one Saturday visiting the G.S.M. National Park.  We happened to be there right in the peak of fall color season and had a great time looking at the foliage and exploring the amazing diversity of lichens in and around the park!
