    Hi Mike. I'm jealous. Rain or no rain, I'm a camper in every sense of the word. Enjoy!

    Sorry about the rain… but the photos are fantastic. I won't hike in the rain, but I am notorious for fishing in a downpour while everyone sits for hours in the tent or car.

    Mike — I love the bear. I used to spend time in the Smokies, but agree totally about hiking in the rain…no fun:~(

    I hope you guys have a wonderful trip and more picture to share with us!

    So, would that be Smokey the Bear? 😉

    I looked at the pics on your other site as well and some of the bears were a little too close for me! 😯 The photos are fantastic, as usual, though. 🙂

    Davina – It is enjoyable, even with the rain. Of course, since we've escaped the even worse and longer rain back home, it's even batter.

    Michelle – Thanks. We don't hike in the rain if we can help it, though we've taken umbrellas along for a couple of hikes this trip — just in case.

    Panther – We saw FOUR bear! Three the same day the picture was taken and then one just as we entered Shenandoah National Park.

    Lisa – The green landscapes are similar to what we have in Arkansas. However, the mountains make our Ozarks look like molehills.

    Sara – The Smokies are great and I'm sure we'll be back again, hopefully when it's not quite so wet.

    Dan – Nope, none of them were Smokey Bear.

    teeni – Thanks. The bears were actually quite a ways away. I used a telephoto lens and we were in the car.
