Tuesday turned out to be a good day in the mountains. There is nothing like the big beautiful trees, running rivers, and huge beautiful rocks to make me feel really good. This pic was taken at the Cades Cove Picnic area where 4 deer were having their lunch while the rest of us gawked and savored the moments. I find my spirit refreshed every time I go to the mountains. Sometimes I wish I could live there. The Cades Cove area is part of the Great Smoky Mountains national park and includes many original churches with burial grounds, original log cabins and large numbers of beautiful animals. If you can make it to Knoxville, Tn, the Smokies are less than an hour away. Anytime you want to have your spirit uplifted, the mountains are waiting.

What a beautiful sight to see. You are ever so lucky and this sounds like my kind of place to live. I love the woods and your pictures makes me love it more.

I know what you mean about the mountain, I live 22 miles fron the southern entrance into Yosemite Natl. Park...There is a spot called Glacier Point that overlooks Yosemite valley and also allows a view of the gigantic granite mountains toward the east...I can never visit there without being moved to tears...such a reminder of how vast the world and how small we are...hug, hug


I live in the Pocono Mountains and often have deer outside my's a lovely way to live...and thanks Judy for your wonderful comments on my blog!
