Day 4, October 30
Up early, ate breakfast in the room, drove into the state park and went to Cades Cove, another auto tour. First two pics are from the drove up there.
On the drive up the colors were incredible. Cades Cove was OK, but not alot of interesting views. Took over an hour to drive 11 miles. On the drive back saw a group of people on the side of road, pulled over and there were 3 bears!!! There were two smaller black bears and one larger one. The larger one was coming up the hill and didn't seem concerned with all the people. My pictures of them didn't turn out too well, but Paul got some great shots on the video camera.
Coming down the Mountain saw this view of Gatlinburg.
Came back to town, lunch at Cracker Barrel because we were starved. In the evening went shopping in Pigeon Forge (outlet malls!) and Seiverville. Dinner at a Chinese Buffet.
