Description

This image was captured while driving the Cades Cove Loop Road. Other than the sweeping landscapes that can be seen everywhere, wildlife can be seen at almost every turn. This image was captured December 30, 2012 following snowfall at the higher elevations. We saw wild turkey, whitetail deer and a coyote on this trip to the park.
