Thats where our cabin is and its secluded. Do you think theres any bears in that area, in the Arts and Crafts Community?
We have not seen any bears for awhile at our place. They will start coming down from the mountain later in October and November looking for food. Make sure that you cabin has a bear proof trash container, they won't bother you if there is no food.
If you are really worried keep a noise maker around. Those small air horns they use for boating would work great. One toot and the bear wil hightail it!!
The National Park and the City of Gatlinburg have warned residents that they expect higher than average bear populations in town because the nut and berry supply has been poor this summer in the Park.
Didn't travel Glades Rd, however we did see 4 bears on our trip last week. We saw all of them on Loop Rd through Cades Cove around 4 in the afternoon. We were very close to a mother w/2 cubs and she didn't seem in the least bothered by us. We watched her long enough to shoot 15 mins of video uninterupted. My 16 month old now says "Big Bear"...hehe.. They were definitely beautiful!
Dear MorgansMommy -
The mother and cubs we saw were on Rich Mountain Road off of Cades Cove Loop Road! Hate to correct you... but you know mother knows best! LOL
Thanks mel....you are such a butt...I couldn't remember the name of that stupid road. Besides, it was right off of Cades!
Too cute you two. First time I have known of a mama and daughter bout on here. I love it. Listen to Mel , Morgan's Mommy, like a good daughter should. Spoken from a mother of 4 daughters. LOL
I live in the Glades on Buckhorn in a cabin and we have seen 2 small bears in the trees behind our house. I have also seen several fox in the front yard early in the mornings when I go to work.
Several times we have heard these loud noises on the roof like something walking and scratching. My neighbor said it could be the
small bears getting on the roof since some of the trees overhang
over the roof. I have went out several times but our cabin is two story
and you can't see on the roof so I don't know what it could be. If anyone has any suggestions what it might be I'd sure appreciate it.
Yeah, remove the limbs LOL.
