Thanksgiving Trip/An Early Winter Storm Watch!

Whoa, Nellie! We are under a winter storm watch today and tonight, which is highly unusual for our area at this time of year.

We had a wonderful trip to the Smokies. We were able to take my favorite loop hike, the Rich Mountain Loop Trail, in Cades Cove.
Looking down into Tuckaleechee Cove from the trail.
Me - no make-up, terrible hair - the usual.
While we were in the National Park, we went to Elkmont to see the cabin that The Professor's grandfather built. It's a little more than one-hundred years old.
The cabin at Elkmont where The Professor spent time as a boy.

It rained on our way up Mt. LeConte. I told you it would. It always rains, either going up or coming down, or both.  It only rained on our way up this time. Yay.
A very cute squirrel at Rainbow Falls, on our way up .
Somebody had obviously been feeding that little squirrel.

Lunch along the trail, in the clouds.

Fortunately, we were able to get our lunch eaten before the rain set in.
The last picture before the deluge.
We didn't take any more pictures since it started pouring rain shortly after we had lunch and the camera stayed packed away for the rest of the trip. I wish I had taken pictures of our time in Maggie Valley with the family. 

Now, I'm off to the grocery store. I would be going to the grocery store today anyhow since we were out of town all last week, but because there's a Winter Storm Watch it is imperative that I go get bread and milk. :)
