I was playing with the new Nikon 300mm f4 – it is an amazing lens, but my skill set didn’t do well with a falcon in flight.
Working on my elk video to try to get to CBS Sunday Morning, I have some holes to fill…

Up early for hunting the elk
then spent the day exploring
Linn Cove Viaduct and clouds. It was time to go back to the mountains for a HOA meeting, bike rides and hanging out with family.

The day started with a drive through Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, a mistake that will never happen again (way too touristy for me) to get to Cades Cove, a neat history filled loop, including this working grist mill.
Just a bear along the road, it was not interested in us at all!
James works on figuring out electrical gremlins, after thinking of complex problems to solve, sometimes the simplest answer is correct… a bad cell in his battery.

Glad to get this ride in…. 2 hours in the rain. I knew when I left the house I would get wet, the rain started 3 minutes into the route and stayed till I got home, at least I missed teh thunderstorms.
Turtle rescue…. right after I picked this guy up, a couple of Bro Dozer trucks came down the road…. I doubt he would have survived!
A busy day. Ft. Fisher Aquarium, hiking the Ft. Fisher Historical site, a bike ride and headed home.
