Here we are getting ready for our hike at Cades Cove. Yes, that is a harness (leash) on our darling daughter. We didn't want to lose her. :) We saw this sign about aggressive bear activity on our way to the trail.
Daddy shows her how to throw the rocks and acorns off of the bridge. According to the hikers who came through after us, there was probably a bear watching us from the woods here. Eek!
This is a picture from Clingman's Dome (well the parking lot). It was so cold and windy up there. It was kind of a hazy day and a huge cloud rolled in just after we climbed to the peak. Ugh! But, the view was fantastic and worth the 1/2 mile hike up to the top (even just to say we were > 6600 ft altitude). :)
