August 12th, Foggy in the Valleys, Clear Elsewhere

As I looked around Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk things looked pretty sunny and clear this morning. However, from Smoketree on Highway 105 down to Foscoe was, indeed, foggy.

*** For those of you who have been following day to day, we saw another small bear walking along the side of the stream behind our lodging here in Gatlinburg this morning. Man, they are in force right now.

Here’s a nice shot from the Echota cam showing the profile of Grandfather Mountain in the background and some heavy fog below.

 

Here is the morning by morning report:

Totals: 9 for 12 (and only sharing the latest dailies)
Aug 12: Clear around the region except dense fog that settled in the valle.
Aug 11:Very foggy from atop Echota, near Foscoe and Seven Devils
Aug 10:Our Matt Laws said that it was very foggy pretty much for his entire trip in this morning.
 Aug 9: Pretty foggy/
 Aug 8: Light fog on the drive over from Elk River to Sugar and down 105

 

If you are into bears (as most of us mountain folk are), check out the bears we witnessed at our motel Friday afternoon and evening.

Until tomorrow… email me at [email protected]
