Bear Sighting

So what do you do if you’re a tourist in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and you just have to see a resident bear? Based on my personal observations this week, here’s what NOT to do …
1) Do not park your car in the middle of the highway and get out to join the others who have parked their cars properly on the sides of the road.
2) Do not grab your toddler out of the car parked in the middle of the road and walk hand-in-hand to view the bears.
3) Do not decide to check under the hood while your car is parked in the middle of the road while traffic is backing up behind you.
4) If you disobey 1 through 3, do not be surprised if the ranger comes to get you.

Beside Quiet Waters

I recently traveled inside the Greenbrier entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. It is an area that is truly off the beaten path and so very beautiful in its solitude.
