Thursday, April 20, 2017, Townsend KOA,Day 2, & The Great Smoky Mountain National Park, 0 miles, 7,599.1 Miles For the Trip

More rain overnight, but it stopped during the morning. I headed into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park & The Cades Cove loop for some photos. I added a page to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, page 1 I keep in the National & State Parks links. Since I did the same thing in 2015, some of the photos on page 3 are duplicates.

I was tempted to hike to Abram Falls, but there were thunderclouds on the horizon & it was described as a 3-4 hour hike, so I skipped it. I did take a photo of the stream at the trailhead.

After that it was back to the campsite. I talked with a new neighbor with an Escape 19, then headed inside to put the Great Smoky Mountain National Park page 3 & today's journal post together. Next is a shower, then dinner, which will be leftovers - a chicken thigh, rice & pinto beans, and asparagus.

Until tomorrow -
