Hello everyone! We are happy you came back after seeing the little teaser post from a couple weeks ago. Were you able to guess the animal sound from that audio post? Well some of you guessed right… it was an elk. Back in October 2018 we visited Cataloochee Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina based on a recommendation from a fellow camper. The only caveat he noted was the drive up the mountain and down into the valley was not for the faint at heart. Our class B motor home is a 20 foot van and there were moments as we drove up then down that our hearts were racing. There are no guard rails and at points you are on the edge of a dirt/gravel road with a huge drop. That being said, it was all worth it! When this fellow camper made the recommendation he noted we should visit in the fall because that was when the elk were extremely active and in “rut” (that’s nature talk for the guy elk liking the girl elk).
We hope you enjoy this video of these magnificent creatures wandering and grazing in the peaceful valleys of this national park.
