We all headed out to enjoy our first hike on a trail. We picked Lead Cove Trail because it looked to be in the sun for most of the trail and the trail followed Sugar Cove Prong (stream). We saw a lot of rhododendron and fallen trees. The fallen trees looked to be from a storm as they were all pointing in the same direction.
The temperature was very cold, but it felt good in the sun. Katie Beth got her pants wet and the pants froze stiff by the end of our hike. We hiked high enough and into the shade enough to see snow.
In Cades Cove, the deer were everywhere grazing in the fields.
