We’re calling this trip our Waterfall trip as we are mostly going to destinations which have waterfalls associated with them.
Pigeon Forge TN / Smokey Mountains
We stayed at Honeysuckle Meadows in Seviersville, TN. We had mixed reviews of the campground itself. The main issue was that there were two busy roads by our campsite, one in front and one to our right. There also happened to be an old car convention going on in Pigeon Forge that weekend making the traffic even worse. We did get out to see some some sights including Laurel Falls, Cades Cove, and Clingmans Dome. While hiking to Laurel Falls, I kept hearing something off to my right, above me. I was finally able to identify it; a bear was tracking beside me! It turns out he was a cub and was trying to get to a trail that crossed the trail we were on. We didn’t see it’s mama but we’re sure she wasn’t far away.
