New Year's Resolution - Return to Cades Code

My New Year's Resolution is to return to the Smoky Mountains in spring and again in early November.  We may catch the first snow fall of the winter season like we did on this trip.  We also drove in rain and sleet and the main road was closed due to snow and ice.  It was an adventure of breathtaking beauty and I will do it again and again. I consider the Smoky Mountains as my home away from home.  It is were my ancestors  dwell for hundreds of years.  I can feel the spirits of native Americans in these woods, mountains and streams.

Abrams Creek in Cades Cove was beautiful with the yellow and orange trees hanging over and along side the roaring rapids.  Snow had just started to fall and rest on the upper tree limbs.
