I got a chance to go to the Smoky Mountains and take some photographs this morning. I went to Cades Cove which is in Blount County, TN. The bear population has been exploding there in the last few years. Today, I saw a momma bear with 3 cute little cubs. It was early in the morning about 8:30 AM and the lighting was dim, so I had to use a slow shutter spped and the ISO was really high. Not something I like to do. Here are some of the pics I got.

Momma bear could not get her cubs to come down out of a tree. They finally came down one at a time.

Very nice set! I love the Smoky Mountains. Usually I'm just driving through from Dallas, TX to Richmond, VA. Once in a blue moon, I'll take some extra time and drive the Blue Ridge Parkway.

It's nice to be only 45 minutes from the Smokys. I do a lot of work in Sevier & Blount counties. It reminds me of the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia where I grew up.

I haven't been to the Smokies in ages. You got some great pictures, that baby bear is a cute little ball of fur.

I remember once in the Smokies a bear got ahold of one of those little Igloo coolers and popped it open like it was a can of pop! no problem getting it open. We watched from a good distance.
