Season of necessity

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity.”

John Muir

Once again it is the season of necessity for us, and we are back at the cabin in the Smokey Mountains. This time, Adam and Laura came with us.


Cades Cove and Roaring Fork, two of our favorite drives, are closed to have the roads redone, but that’s alright. We brought our fly fishing gear…thank goodness… because it’s a little warmer than we expected it to be. We’re not much for hiking in the heat.


After unloading our stuff, we drove into the park and visited the cascades. Like I said, it’s warmer than we expected so

we cooled off by dangling our hands in the water.


That is, all of us except Joel.


He opted for bottled water.
