    Lazy (& not so lazy) Days

    June 11, 2016 in the United States

    There wasn't much to be said for the town on the edge, but we did emerge reinvigorated and significantly less smelly. It was really nice to have wifi after the best part of a week with no signal, and we put it to good use pulling down the new series of Peaky Blinders.

    The morning was spent mooching at the campsite for as long as possible then we headed to Cades Cove, back in the park. The piggly road took some time but the primitive campsite at the end of it was amazing.

    As luck would have it, Saturday morning is one of the 2 days they ban cars from the loop road so an early start (the first alarm of our trip!) provided us with a couple of peaceful hours biking around the meadow roads without those noisy Harleys/trucks.

    We then decided a little hike was in order, so 7 grueling hours later we made it back to the campsite! We had somehow managed to do another 1000m up AND back down again. A obligatory dousing in the local river and a lazy evening rounded off the day. We'd racked up over 49k steps, which is definitely a record. Even our 'rest' day was 13k and it makes you realise how sedentary life is behind a desk.
    Enjoyed the firefly display next to our campsite in the evening.

    Auf in die Smoky Mountains

    May 15 in the United States

    Heute ging es auf dem Blue Ridge Parkway nach Süden und dann bei Cherokee in den Smoky Mountain National Park. Das Wetter war durchwachsen bis schlecht, aber wir haben das Beste draus gemacht. Ein Picknick am Fluss, das Freiluftmuseum beim Ocanaluftee Visitor Center, Immobilienschau in Cades Cove 😉 und dann durch Nacht, Regen und Wolken zurück zum Campingplatz. Wir waren gegen 21.30 zurück. Jetzt warm einpacken und gute Nacht.Read more

    Smoky Mountain Bear Sighting!!!

    July 10, 2017 in the United States

    Yes, we saw a bear! A momma black bear and her three cubs. The bear was actually pretty close to us. Yikes!

    All of a sudden a few cars stopped and people got out and started pointing. We knew exactly what was going on! Out of nowhere two rangers appeared.

    I saw the cubs hoping through the woods, but couldn't get my camera out in time. Casey got some good shots with our digital SLR camera. Unfortunately, there was a lot of brush between us and the bear. Well, maybe it was fortunate. 😉

    Momma bear did not acknowledge us. However, when she started coming closer, we split! One of the rangers looked panicked for a moment. By the time we got back to the car, the bear had moved off into the woods.

    I got a video and you can see how close the bear was.

    FindPenguins is great, but you can only put 10 photos in a post. So, I stuck a couple more scenery shots in here. Enjoy!
