Summer Vacation to Tennessee

We left WV on the 8th only to turn back around the next day and head for Gatlinburg, TN to spend a few days in a cabin that we had rented. I wanted to visit Cades Cove to see if I could spot any deer or bear. I was able to see both, but the scariest part of the trip was the snake we both about stepped on at the little Early Mountain Community in Cades Cove. Our cabin was beautiful and the hot tub relaxing. The food at The Old Mill was to die for. I could spend weeks if not months in this area of the country.

Momma bear that we saw after we left the falls. She had 2 cubs with her.
