It was a pretty quiet day up top. We did get a report from one of the park's bear guys that there is a rather large bear towards the top of Bullhead. If you see this bear on your way up, please report it to the office staff. You will know if it is the same bear by the large yellow paint on his rear end. The park tagged him with the paint so we will know if he continues to hang around. The park employee said the bears are coming around earlier this year. They are in search of food. It was a lean year last year so the bear population is waking up from their winter naps a little on the hungry side.
The sky is clearing off this morning. It is looking like another fine day to be hiking in the Smokies. Come on up and see us.
