Up in the Smokies

After some fun in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, we drove up into the mountains. So beautiful...I have missed them very much after living in other places the past 14 years.
A clear mountain stream...
Stopping to get a cool drink of water coming right out of the mountainside. There's nothing better!

Keep the pictures of the landscapes coming Candace. The more Kevin sees of them, the more he will want to move there. There is nothing prettier in this whole world than those mountains.

Candace, did you tell the kids about the time you drove up this road and saw a bear. You were about 4 years old and the bear walked right into the road. We have movie pictures of it.

Awe, we love trips to the mountains...the best! We try to vacate there every time we get a chance...never get bored of our area! Glad you all enjoyed some time together girl!

Yes, Mama, Kaleb can't believe I have seen a bear walk up to my car. :)
What time of year was that?

I was in the hospital w/pneumonia and 8 months pregnant with Kristin. So it was around the end of June in '82. The Knoxville worlds fair was going on and you all drove up there w/Nancy and John in their car. My girl friend from high school.

Yeah, people around here have told us during the summer is when you will see the most wildlife up in Cades Cove.
I really wish you and Meradeth were coming too, Kevin! :(
