Hill Walking 4:00:00 
Spent all Saturday driving from Atlanta to our place in Pigeon Forge, TN. Our plans for a short walk were scuppered by the Chimney Top trail being burned out and then a tiny bear up a tree induced traffic jam (very cute, people should learn to pull over). Lovely little cabin outside the worst of Pigeon Forge, which was a bizarre cross between Blackpool and Vegas. Not a place we will go near again I think!
But on Sunday we got out early for us and did the Alum Cave Trail up to the top of Mount Le Conte. All the other trails we'd planned were closed, including Clingman's Dome, but this proved to be a fine substitute with excellent views of peaceful rolling green. Glad we started earlyish, as by the mid afternoon it was super hot, but by then we were down and ready for ice cream.
