Starting off today’s adventures with a good breakfast at The Mountaineer Restaurant.
And here’s the plan…
Cade’s Cove. She won’t let me escape that. (I secretly enjoy it.)
Sevierville and Pigeon Forge.

This did not go as planned.
Cade’s Cove was great. We saw three bears! A full-grown one and two cubs. Along with the various other wildlife we usually run across. Always a good time, especially when she gets so excited.
Look Rock started out odd and we got lost a bit.
We ended up walking on a closed road due to a bad Google review. Apparently they didn’t know where they were in relation to the actual observation platform.
If you know how to read and don’t drive on by the signs, you’re okay. We do know how to read and passed right by this one.
It’s a neat little hike, paved the whole way although it’s got some steep incline throughout. We ain’t in the best of shape so some heavy breathing happened. Not the good kind.
Worth going to at least once. For us anyway.
Pigeon Forge was kind of a bust but we continued on to Sevierville and the Great Smoky Mountain Knife Works.
It’s the world largest knife store and my kind of place.
The 23rd wedding anniversary gift is a silver plate by tradition. We got each other knives and the blades are silver in color. We will take it.
Clingman’s Dome didn’t happen today. We opted for taking the other way home and seeing more of the state. Then dinner at a favorite restaurant.
Today was a good day.
That’s it. That’s the post.
