Here’s what we did the day after Independence Day. Out in Cade’s Cove, TN, (The Smokey Mountains, we’re on vacation) after we’d hiked up to Abram’s Falls, and on the loop road back out, there was a mother bear and three cubs. Here’s two of the cubs. Apparently it is a good idea to get back inside your car when they come your way. We all did, the bears moved deeper into the woods after crossing the road, and we headed back to town. Totally richer for the experience of seeing these out in the wild.
