Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - Cades Cove Campground, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, TN, Day 4 - 0 Miles, 6,982.6 Towing Miles For the Trip

While it was a cold morning at 32°F at 7:00AM, it turned out to be a beautiful day with afternoon temperatures in the 60's. I got a late start on the Cades Cove loop road,but did get to see a few animals, including turkeys, a bear, and some deer.

I drove Forge Creek Road near the Cades Cove Visitor Center for the first time. A pretty drive along the creek; I stopped for a few photos of the cascades. I also took some photos of a couple of the homesteads along the loop. I've probably photographed them before on previous visits to the park, but why not?

I stopped at the campground store for a hot dog & firewood, then headed back to the trailer to process the photos & put together today's journal. While a nice warm, mostly sunny day, not as much charging as I'd like - I'm still down by 13.5 amp hours at 3:30.

Dinner will be the rest of the chicken, along with more coleslaw.

Until Tomorrow -
