We went to Cades Cove Sunday. It was HOT, so not too many animals out and about. The flowers were pretty. First we saw some gladiolus in the edge of the woods. The trees are growing up so that they don't bloom as well as they would out in the open. This one looks so delicate.
The Rosebay Rhododendron was in full bloom all along the highways especially next to the streams.
And there ARE bears in the cove too.
This is the waterfall when you first leave the Townsend Y, headed toward Cades Cove.
It was nice that Jimmy could take a day off for us to just be together.
