2, Winter. Because it’s gone before you really get sick of it. Often it only snows up in the mountains so if you want to see the snow you can go up the mountain. Then you can come back down and go about your life.

I still remember my first springtime visit to east Tennessee seeing these beautiful pink purple trees blooming all along the sides of the road!
