There is a chance we will only see the dew covered grass but there is a chance we may discover much more. Bears are still a possibility, along with deer, birds and butterflies. There may be some good landscape opportunities.  

Location Description:  

Cades Cove fields

You will want to wear long pants as you will be in the grass and other weeds. 

Due to limit parking, we will need to take as few cars as possible into the Cove.


Learning opportunities:

Bring the lens you want to use.  A telephoto lens may be handy along with a macro lens.

What to bring:

  • Your favorite DSLR camera.
  • Your fastest lens will give you more opportunities to get a good background.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear.
  • Tripod may be useful.
  • Rain gear for yourself and a rain cover for your camera in case we have rain.
  • Bring WATER.... SNACKS

Remember to dress for the weather.
