It feels good to be back on the mountain. Blue skies and warm sun. Life is good. The high yesterday was a nice 68 degrees. Perfect for lounging in a hammock and watching the clouds roll by. There have been bear sightings at the lower end of Alum Cave. It sounds as though our little four legged friends are out and about. I know they are around my house in Gatlinburg. I was sitting on the couch Tuesday morning and saw a dark figure slowly walking by my glass doors. I looked out and saw a mama bear and her three babies passing through my yard. It was fun to watch them with a big piece of glass between us.
