Day 3--Little River Road, Roaring Fork, and Wildlife at Cades Cove

The early morning drive along Little River Road was beautiful on Saturday, so we decided to repeat it again on Sunday.  We ate breakfast at Riverstone before heading out, and we were early enough that only the locals were stirring.   678 more words
