What a beautiful yesterday here in the mountains. After church we went to Cades Cove for a picnic, then took a jeep ride through the cove loop driving tour.
On the way to the Cove. As you can see the trees down here are just starting to turn.

Linda & I in the back of the jeep riding through the cove. It's an 11 mile loop but it took us almost 2 hours. The speed limit is 10 mph and there are many times, you are at a total stop.
Like this picture..
This picture, my friends, is what they call a "buck jam".
There is alot of wildlife in the cove; deer, fox, coyote, bear, turkeys, etc. We were hoping to see bear, but no luck.
Cars come to a complete stop when they spot an animal. In this picture, someone up ahead saw a buck deer. I guess it's all in perspective. Back home we really don't want to see deer by the road no matter how slow you are going!
I can't think of a better way to spend a warm Fall Sunday, than in the mountains.
