This week's fauna were all sighted on Wednesday while hiking in Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was a cool, dreary, misty/drizzly day - my favorite kind and the best for hiking off-trail!
|Red-tailed Hawk (I think) - we saw many hawks while driving & hiking.|
|The only things we saw more than hawks were deer - lots!|
|....including a handful of lovely bucks.|
|11 deer in this field near the Elijah Oliver cabin.|
