But the weather has not played nice. It has rained and rained. The ground is soaked. The river is rising.
Today was less overcast than most of the days so we took off. We were supposed to take a motor trail through the Smokies but it was closed.
We found a picturesque old cabin,and signs of Spring everywhere.
But the best part happened when we were discovered by two deer who were so intent on eating lunch, they didn't mind me being five feet away. I think they actually posed for some of the fifty shots I took.
