John and I were in Gatlinburg back at the first of June to see the Fire Flies at Elkmont. Here are a few picture from the rest of the trip.
Roaring Fork Motor Trail
1st bear we saw
If you read my blog you know I love trees. So, this dogwood tree amazed me. John and I have a dogwood tree that we have babied for 20 years. It started out about a foot tall and smaller around than my little finger and 20 years later it is a beautiful tree (and I thought big) but it is only about 3 inches around. Makes you wonder how old this dogwood is!
Mama Bear and cub
Look close at the beards on these turkeys
We were on the primitive road.....I think it is called Rich Road....that you can get on in Cades Cove. It comes out in Townsend. Look close to the bottom center and you can see the Methodist church in Cades Cove.
As I was taking the picture of the Valley below us I saw this really "ugly" lizard. It was so camouflaged against this tree with it's skin having little spikes on it that made it look like bark. Amazing....all the little things God did in making his creation!
Again, look closely at the very center of this picture.......do you see Mama Bear up in that tree?
