We decided to head into the Smokies by heading to the Cade’s Cove Scenic route. It was an absolutely beautiful slow drive through a blend of wild flower fields and lush woodlands. We also saw several preserved period homes and churches.
The best part of the trip was toward the end when we came up on a momma black bear and her two cubs. The were less then ten feet from the car for five minutes munching on leaves. Then they just crossed right behind our car and headed out. Awesome sight to see!
Next we came home and I started up on dinner. I had some awesome looking Ribeyes, and I roasted up some okra and peppers. Last, since we have a boat load of apples from our orchard trip a few days ago, sautéed up some more apples in ghee!
