    Thanks for the comments. Cades Cove is an awesome place, we were up at 4:00 in the morning and was on the loop at 6:30am. That was a challenge with an 8 and 5 year old. Freinds of mine told me early morning was the best time to see wildlife and they were defenitely right. I lost count of the number of deer we saw that morning. Those spots on the first deer were not ticks, they were thistles.
     
  6. That's a magical place. Nice set of images. Thanks for sharing.
