Spring time in Cades Cove is unique. This is an early pre-spring visit that we will be looking for various signs of spring life as to early flowers, frogs, birds, and some signs of death at some of the cemeteries. We will do some walking. Total distance will vary as we will check out some areas that most do not, and other areas that are your typical tourist stops.
Cades Cove Loop Road and various areas off the road.
This will give you a chance to explore the area without all the traffic. Bring your short lens and your long lens. A tripod may be handy for some of the stops. You should get a chance to explore with some things you usually do not get a chance. Maybe a tadpole or two.
What to bring:
- Your favorite DSLR camera and lens. Extra batteries.
- Bring cold weather gear.
- Tripod can be useful .
- Rain gear for yourself and a rain cover for your camera in case we have rain.
Remember to dress for the weather and in layers if needed. Waterproof foot gear might be useful with recent rain it could be muddy in some areas.
